66 years ago nuclear bombs fell on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, causing untold death and destruction. The anniversary is a powerful reminder to us all of the horrors of nuclear weapons. This short documentary by the Comprehensive Test-Ban Treaty Organization tells the story of why The Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty is a key step on the road to a nuclear weapons-free world. It’s time for international leaders to listen to the voice of the people and ratify the Treaty without further delay.
