Hibakushas’ Legacy: Hope for Peace

 

9/21-22— For nine days only, get a sneak peek into the ongoing photo and video project by photographer Darrell Miho, who is documenting the real life experiences of hibakusha (atomic bomb survivors). Get a glimpse into what life was like on those fateful days in Hiroshima and Nagasaki from those who survived the bombings.

In an effort to promote world peace, Miho will be traveling to Brazil, Canada, South Korea and throughout Japan and the United States to photograph and interview more than 100 hibakusha who wish to share their experiences with the world.

We must never forget the suffering that the hibakusha have endured for the past 68 years nor the tragedies that befell so many innocent lives. It is now our responsibility to share their stories. To educate the world on how nuclear weapons affect people’s lives. To ensure that noone else suffers the same pain and heartaches. And most importantly, to carry on their hope for peace and a world free of nuclear weapons.
