Hiroshima Event Poster

On Monday, September 8th, Washington University will host a very special guest: Ms.Yoshiko Kajimoto, a survivor of the atomic bomb attack on Hiroshima, Japan, will come to campus to speak about her experience.  This is a very rare opportunity to educate the Washington University community about what happened at Hiroshima and to open the door for discussion about the future of nuclear weapons in our world with the presence of someone who has experienced nuclear destruction first-hand.   

Following her presentation, Professors Jim Wertsch, Lori Watt, Leila Sadat, Clare Palmer, and Michael Lin will lead a panel discussion to answer important questions students might have about nuclear proliferation and the ethical dilemma that these weapons present.   

This program will begin at 6:00 pm in Danforth University Center Classroom 276 and will be followed by a reception with free sushi after the event.   Please join us for this program to hear Ms. Kajimoto's story and join the dialog.  

Special thanks to our sponsors: Sigma Iota Rho, the Harris World Law Institute, and the Heisei Japan Club for making this event possible.
