Hiroshima and Nagasaki were the first cities in human history to experience the atomic bombing. In an instant, the cities were completely devastated and many lives were lost. The spirits and bodies of those who barely survived were wounded deeply, and the pain continues today, more than a half-century later. The Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum continues to appeal to the world that such an event may never again occur on this planet.
Meet Sadae Kasaoka, a witness to the Hiroshima atomic bomb, on Thursday, September 19th at 12-noon in the Kate Gleason Auditorium. Ms. Kasaoka speaks about peace for the Hiroshima Peace Culture Foundation.
