The US Administration then attempted to have the nomination modified, in order to illustrate the historical context of the dropping of the bomb on Hiroshima as a response to the continuing Japanese aggression in the Pacific. Finally, it even proposed what it considered to be a more balanced, joint nomination with Japan on the basis of scientific achievement. None of these attempts by the US Administration to influence the content of the Dome nomination succeeded and, in 1996, the nomination proceeded to the World Heritage Committee for consideration.
The Dome is set on a piece of grassy ground that is surrounded by a black, iron railing fence. This fence circumscribes the boundary of both the plot on which the Dome stands and also the World Heritage area itself. The Peace Park is not included in the World Heritage area because at the time the Dome was nominated, the Park was less than 50 years old. Under Japanese legislation, this meant that it could not be designated as an historic site and consequently could not be considered as part of the World Heritage nomination (Inaba 2003).
The US delegation was instructed by the US State Department to read out a statement at the World Heritage Committee meeting opposing the nomination. This occurred in spite of the fact that, for philosophical and heritage reasons, the delegation members were actually in favour of its inclusion on the List. These events underline Huyssen’s observation that ‘memory and amnesia always exist side by side and remain part of the political struggle’ (Huyssen 2003:95).
