70 Years after Surviving Hiroshima and Nagasaki

The year 2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the A-bomb droppings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Center for the Study of Genocide and Human Rights (CGHR) hosted speakers of the organization Hibakusha Stories.  The mission of Hibakusha Stories 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 tools to build a world free of nuclear weapons.  'Hibakusha' is the Japanese word for atomic bomb survivors who, in their advancing age, have a very limited opportunity to share their first hand experiences." For more information about the Hibakusha Stories please visit:  http://www.hibakushastories.org/ The event was co-sponsored by the Division of Global Affairs (DGA) and the Student Association of Global Affairs (SAGA) of Rutgers-Newark.
