"Nuclear Nightmares: Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Historical Context"


Location: Hesburgh Library 2nd Floor


Nearly 70 years after the end of WWII, it is essential to remember the human costs of total war. With mounting tensions in Asia and throughout the world, this exhibit asks us to ponder the consequences of militarization on humanity and the environment. The poster exhibit includes 60 posters – 30 in English and 30 in Japanese – produced by the Hiroshima! Peace Memorial Museum.

The lessons learned from Hiroshima and Nagasaki are important reminders to the global community. This interactive exhibit fosters the study of peace and education about Asia in the world both in and outside the classroom.

Co-sponsored by the Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies, the Kroc Center for International Peace Studies, the Institute for Scholarship in the Liberal Arts and the Hesburgh Libraries. The exhibit features an introduction by Professor Julia Adeney Thomas, Department of History.
