A Canadian who survived the nuclear attack on Hiroshima will accept the Nobel Peace Prize on behalf of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons.

85-year-old Setsuko Thurlow was 13 and living in Hiroshima when the U.S. dropped the first of two nuclear bombs on Japan.

Thurlow married a Canadian and moved to Toronto in the 1950’s and will accept the Nobel Peace Prize with the executive director of ICAN in Oslo, Norway in December.

Thurlow has campaigned against nuclear weapons her entire life and said in a statement that she is “deeply humbled” by the award.
