Photo Exhibition: From the Atomic Bomb to the Nobel Peace Prize
This photo exhibition will look at the impact of nuclear weapons and recent progress toward their elimination from a humanitarian point of view. It will focus on the devastation caused by early use and testing of these weapons and civil society’s role in producing the 2017 treaty that bans them.
The exhibition accompanies “A Survivor’s Story,” an October 8 event featuring Setsuko Thurlow, who lived through the Hiroshima bombing and accepted the Nobel Peace Prize on behalf of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons.
Organized by the Armed Conflict and Civilian Protection Initiative, Hibakusha Stories/Youth Arts New York, and HLS Advocates for Human Rights. Viewable from October 1 through October 8.
