Dear GVCP Member,
Arnie Matlin for GVCP
This is Atsushi Tajima . . . at SUNY Geneseo. Perhaps you and the GVCP members are aware of the following events regarding atomic bombs. But I am passing the info along in case you have not heard of it yet. If not yet, can you pass the info to the GVCP members?
1. Central Library of Rochester & Monroe County will have an exhibition entitled “Hiroshima-Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Exhibit,” Sept. 16-28. See https://calendar.libraryweb.org/event/5813543 for more info.
2. Ms. Sadae Kasaoka, an atomic bomb survivor (hibakusha) from Hiroshima, will give a testimonial talk on Thursday, 9/19 & Saturday, 9/21 (See the schedule below.). She was 12 years old when Hiroshima was a-bombed.
(1) Thursday, September 19, 2019, 12:00pm-1:30pm
Central Library of Rochester & Monroe County
Kate Gleason Auditorium
115 South Ave., Rochester, NY14604
(2) Saturday, September 21, 2019. 3:30pm-5:00pm
University of Rochester
1045 Wilson Blvd., Rochester, NY14627
*On weekends you may park in any parking lot on campus except in the “reserved” spaces.
All of these events are open to public. Atomic bomb survivors’ testimony today is increasingly precious, even in Japan. We are fortunate to have this very rare and precious opportunity to hear Sadae’s story, who comes to Rochester all the way from Japan.
I am attaching flyers both in English and Japanese.
Atsushi Tajima, Ph.D.
