SDGs Online Roundtable (16th) Thinking about Peace

How should we think and act in the midst of climate change, new coronavirus infections, and armed aggression? We hope that this is a world in which adults show children that such actions will not be tolerated.

On May 26, we will invite Mr. Kuzushita and Ms. Nakamura, who have been active as atomic bomb storytellers, to talk about the absurdity of the atomic bombing through their own experiences. This is a rare opportunity. The issue of nuclear weapons is a current issue. We look forward to your participation.

Summary of Mr. Tomokazu Kuzushita’s Story
At the age of 19, Tomokazu Kuzushita was exposed to the atomic bombing in the Hiroshima Technical College building. After the bombing, the students were asked to take part in relief work on Ninoshima Island (an island in Hiroshima Bay), where they assisted in the treatment of people who had been brought by boat from Hiroshima City. As a result, he suffered from A-bomb disease. The story he will share is about his rescue activities.

Summary of Ms. Michiko Nakamura’s Story
My father was exposed to the atomic bomb at the age of 26 in a Japanese National Railways hospital located 1.7 km from the hypocenter. I was diagnosed with chronic myelogenous leukemia in 2009 and underwent surgery for thyroid cancer in 2014. The threat of the Atomic-bomb continues to this day. Nuclear weapons are a current issue, as evidenced by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The Hyogo Association of Nisei A-bomb Survivors
The Hyogo Prefecture Nisei A-bomb Survivors Association is an association of second and third-generation A-bomb survivors. We aim to promote exchange among second and third generation A-bomb survivors and to pass on the A-bomb experience to future generations. We will carry on the wish of the Atomic-bomb survivors, “Never create another Hibakusha,” for the abolition of nuclear weapons.
