Nagasaki/Hiroshima Storytelling

  • Prescott Public Library 215 East Goodwin Street Prescott, AZ, 86303 United States (map)

DWPA has endorsed this special presentation by the Prescott Peace Builders. It is in remembrance of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki that ushered in the era of living with nuclear weapons and the ever present threat of nuclear war. The event is free and will take place in the Founder’s Room of the Prescott Library.
Hear the stories of how people have been affected by living with "The Bomb”. One of the story tellers will talk about her and her family being “Downwinders”, which is the term given to those who were affected by radioactive fallout from the above-ground nuclear weapons testing done in the U.S. Just recently there were articles in the Courier about financial compensation for the effects of radiation from nuclear testing being expanded to include people northern Arizona. In reality, all of us who grew-up in the age of nuclear weapons testing are “Downwinders.” Nuclear Radiation knows no boundaries; it goes where the wind carries it.
