When: Thu., March 25, 5:30-7 p.m.
On August 6, 1945, Shigeko Sasamori survived the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. In 1955, Norman Cousins, American journalist and peace activist, brought a group of 25 victims of the atomic bomb attack to America for reconstructive surgery. These girls were referred to as the Hiroshima Maidens. Shigeko was one of them. She continued her education in America and became a nurse. Her story was featured in Steven Okazaki’s award-winning film White Light Black Rain. Today Shigeko dedicates her life to promoting peace throughout the world and spreading the message of Hiroshima.
