These days Tehran Peace Museum and Tehran's City Park are hosting the seeds of Hiroshima's Ginkgo tree, collected in 2012 from the mother tree located in Shukkeien Garden less than 1.5 kilometers from the hypocenter of the atomic bomb attack (1945). These seeds are the precious messengers of life, hope and peace and with their surviving during all these years, have planted the seed of hope in the hearts of many survivors of wars around the world.
These seeds were handed to the Tehran Peace Museum in late January 2013 by Professor Inai; and soon with the contribution of the Center for Gardening Education of the municipality, will plant and after sapling, they will be planted officially in front of the Tehran Peace Museum.
The "Green Legacy Hiroshima" is a joint project organized by United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) office in Hiroshima and ANT-Hiroshima (Asian Network of Trust). By sending the seeds and saplings of atomic bombing (1945) survivor trees around the globe, the GLH projec spreads the message of peace, friendship and their green legacy.
