Hiroshima for Global Peace


This paper explained the administrative measures against the damage caused by the atomic bombing and the recovery process of administrative operations returning to normal by focusing on preparation for air raids at a time when a mainland battle was still being predicted, prompt measures for recovery led by the Army, rescue operations, first-aid relief, information control, measures for keeping the public calm, maintaining security, breaking free of military administration, recruiting officers for returning to normal operations, personnel and commodities inherited from the army, etc.

Since the administrative system experienced enormous damage, its recovery was not easy. In addition, Hiroshima City and the people residing there had more difficult challenges and would require a longer time to recover. I would like to address these subjects at another opportunity.
