Maintaining the memory of the tests is the main reason for this memorial which is interesting enough, but there is a short history of the tests and worth stopping for.

It was good to see that there is a memorial for the nuclear testings that so many of my generation protested about, and it is well sited, on the waterfront of Papeete.

Between 1966 and 1996, France detonated 193 atomic bombs on Moruroa and Fangataufa Atolls. Thousands of former test-site workers and the peoples of the Pacific live with the memory of these weapons, which today still continue to affect their health and the environment.
