Talk by Hisroshima Survivor Junko Kayashigne
Junko speaks widely about her experiences and opposition to nuclear weapons across Japan and has traveled to a number of countries for this purpose, including to Egypt (to help teach rising members of its foreign service) and Korea, as well as here in the U.S. She was a keynote speaker at the national peace studies association conference a few years ago. Her art provides her another way to powerfully communicate the grave dangers and immediate personal impacts of nuclear weapons. She will show a slide show or some of her art as part of her presentation. Junko will also address the impact on people’s lives of the meltdown at Fukushima.
Read her testimony about the bombing of Hiroshima.
She will be speaking at Carnegie Mellon University, Porter Hall 100 on October 12th at 7:00pm as part of CMU’s “Two Weeks of Peace”.
This is a part of a series of event this fall by a coalition Remembering Hiroshima: Imagining Peace. For more information on upcoming events visit our blog.
