Hiroshima signifies the end of a worldview and the beginning of a different form of civilization. In this contribution, historian of technoscience and gender Maria Rentetzi shares the story of a personal encounter during a research trip to the city that fell victim to the 1945 dropping of the atomic bomb. Can we learn from the intense humanity that is inscribed in gestures of deep respect and apology to the survivors of this horrific event at the dawn of the Anthropocene?
