This exhibition has provided an overview of the use of aerial bombardment against civilians.
Millions of people have been impacted worldwide, and yet in 2021, nuclear weapon stockpiles are growing, the use of drones is on the increase and the legality of aerial bombing still remains a grey area. It seems 76 years on, lessons have not been learnt.
