This is an exhibit on loan from the Nagasaki National Peace Memorial Hall for the Atomic Bomb Victims in Japan. This photographic exhibition of images of Nagasaki before and after the atomic bombing and the lingering effects of nuclear weapons on human beings will be in the East Campus Black Box Theater the week of October 7th - 11th and may be visited anytime without appointment. The Black Box Theater is open from 8 AM to 7 PM, Monday through Friday.

In addition, there will be a catered opening reception on Monday, Oct. 7, beginning at 5 PM, followed by a guest speaker, Mr. Sadahiro Kiyono, a survivor of the Nagasaki bombing (an 8-year old boy at the time), who will share his recollections of the event and the fallout over the years as the effects of radiation manifested among his friends and family. Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn to make origami cranes, which emerged in the aftermath of the bombing as symbols of peace, and to leave their thoughts on cards that will be returned to the Nagasaki Foundation to be preserved in their Peace Memorial. Professor Paul Chapman will facilitate a discussion group on East Campus in connection with PJI and Peace Week, Thursday September 26, 2019, at 2:30pm
