Salon This Week: Hiroshima and Nagasaki

Peace Philosophy Salon

"Hiroshima and Nagasaki - Journey of the Heart"

This week we will learn about Iri and Toshi Maruki, two artists who produced numerous art work on the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and its victims. One of Toshi Maruki's well-known works is "Hiroshima No Pika," a children's book that has been translated into many languages and can be easily found in local and school libraries. We will also focus on Joe O'Donnell, this military photographer who secretly took private photos of the horrific aftermath of Nagasaki atomic-bombing, which he disclosed 43 years later.

Date and Time: 7 PM - 10 PM, Saturday March 14

Place: Peace Philosophy Centre (email for direction)

* We will host a pizza social from 6 PM. About $5 per person will be collected. You are welcome to bring drinks and snacks to share.

* This is a bilingual (Japanese and English) event. Translation is available.

RSVP : to by March 13. Let us knowwhether you are going to join us for pizza at 6 PM or not.

We hope to see many of you there!
