News IconHibakusha Stories: Survivors of the Atomic Bomb  

Atomic bomb survivors Mr. Yasuaki Yamashita and Ms. Shigeko Sasamori share their firsthand experience of the bombings of Nagasaki Aug. 9, 1945, and Hiroshima on Aug. 6, 1945. They will discuss the subsequent trajectories of their lives. "Hibakusha" is the Japanese word for atomic bomb survivors, who, in their advancing age, have a very limited opportunity to share their accounts. Hibakusha Stories is brought to Tulsa in part thanks to an initiative by Youth Arts New York. 

The mission Hibakusha Stories, a U.N.-affiliated NGO, is to pass the legacy of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki to a new generation of high school and university students to empower them with the tools to build a world free of nuclear weapons.
