WHO/WHAT: Another entry in the Peace Institute’s online “Beginning and End of the Bomb Talk Story” series on resiliency during unprecedented times is “Nagasaki Hibakusha Stories with Mr. Shohei Tsuiki and Mr. Yoshiro Yamawaki,” where two hibakusha or atomic-bomb survivors share their personal experiences of Aug. 9, 1945.
Co-sponsored by the Nagasaki Foundation for the Promotion of Peace, this talk lets us cherish the survival of 93-year-oldTsuiki, who during the bombing was an 18-year-old college student employed at a Japanese munitions factory; and of Yamawaki, who as an 11-year-old boy had unknowingly walked into the hypocenter of the bombing to find his family.
