Rutgers University Newark's Association of International Relations, the Honors Living and Learning Community Student Council, and Peace Boat US cordially invites you to Abolishing Nuclear Weapons with the Power of Civil Society: Hiroshima Survivors Testimonies through the Hibakusha Project.
This event will take place on October 29th, 2018 at the Paul Robeson Campus Center (350 Dr. Martin Luther King Blvd), Essex Room(232) from 5:00pm-9:00pm.
During this event, students will have the opportunity to experience the testimonies of the survivors of the Hiroshima atomic bombing that was carried out by the United States government in 1945. The event aims to bring visibility to the narratives of these survivors as they are usually excluded from many history teachings. Also, this helps students to understand the urgency to make our world nuclear-free.
