For over eight years, Hibakusha Stories brought history into the classroom to inform youth about the dangers of nuclear weapons, nuclear power and the long-lived ionizing radiation that results from these twin technologies. Nothing is more profound than the first hand witness of the hibakusha to help students find the motivation to work for a world free of nuclear weapons. Hibakusha Stories provides resources for students to pro-actively respond to the real dangers of nuclear weapons through art, science and culture.
During the 2016 – 2017 school year we will be presenting our annual Teaching Hiroshima and Nagasaki professional development workshop at the United Nations on election day, November 8 and a week of workshops in Tulsa, OK.
Hibakusha Stories director Kathleen Sullivan, PhD, continues to work independently with hibakusha in educational institutions, the United Nations and Non-Governmental Organizations. You may contact her through our Contact page.
