HIROSHIMA — Although the world has become more aware of the dangers of atomic weapons, nuclear testing continues, Tatsuya Hayashi of the Hiroshima YMCA said August 4 at the opening of the three-day 1997 Youth Peace Seminar.

“Regrettably, the United States recently conducted underground tests of nuclear weapons,” Hayashi told 47 high school students from both Japan and abroad at the Hiroshima YMCA. The event, sponsored by the Hiroshima YMCA Global Community Center, is designed to help high school students learn about the atomic bombing of Hiroshima through a series of seminars, field trips and discussions.
