Special display of artifacts from atomic bomb victims on view through March 1, 2020
A uranium bomb devastated Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, and a plutonium bomb exploded over Nagasaki on August 9. Beyond the many dead, the survivors have endured physical and spiritual pain to this day. Japanese Americans then living in Hiroshima and Nagasaki who survived are a part of this vital story. To commemorate the upcoming 75th anniversary of the bombings, this special exhibition presents photographs, explanatory texts, artifacts, and contemporary art that provides an array of perspectives on the effects of the atomic bombs and their impact today, shedding light on this painful history and providing a safe space for discussion with the hope that such events never happen again.
