Seeds of Peace Hiroshima and Nagasaki Remembrance Events

Visions and Voices of Peace

Saturday, August 6, 2-4:40 pm ~ King Center, Freedom Hall ~ 449 Auburn Avenue

We know that to make peace a reality, we must look to the past, seeking guidance from both those events that amplified the devastating effects of violence and those people that helped pave the way for peace. This event, on the 66th anniversary of the atomic bomb at Hiroshima, will feature a light reception, screening film clips from Hibakusha: Our Life to Live with a Q & A with director, David Rothauser, dramatic readings of firsthand accounts from children survivors of the atomic bombs done by local students, music, spoken word poetry by Alice Lovelace and Theresa Davis, a photo exhibition of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and more!
