Tree Donor

The City of Hannover in Commemoration of 10 Years of Sister City Relations

Date

August 3, 1993

Reason for Donation

Hiroshima and Hannover (Federal Republic of Germany) established official sister city relations on June 27, 1983. This Cornus florida dogwood tree was planted in 1993 to commemorate 10 years of friendship.

Background to the Sister City Agreement
In 1968, inspired by the Japan-Germany cultural agreement, the President of the International Youth Association of Hiroshima led 130 young people (including two from Hiroshima) on a visit to Hannover as part of a Japan-Germany Youth Exchange Project. This paved the way for further reciprocal youth visits between the two cities, which laid the groundwork for the future sister city agreement.

In 1972, the Mayor of Hiroshima visited Hannover for the first time, thus extending these exchanges to the administrative level. These citizen and administrative exchanges fostered amicable relations between the two cities, which in turn strengthened the desire for concluding a sister city agreement.

On May 27, 1983, the Mayor of Hiroshima and a representative from City Council signed the sister city agreement in Hannover. In the agreement it is stated that, "Both of our cities and citizens have experienced the horrors of war in their histories. In view of the fact that they have both been revived as major cities in their respective countries, we recognize the necessity of contributing together to establish world peace and will work for the promotion of mutual exchanges in a broad range of areas in order to further increase mutual respect, trust, and understanding."
