One of the defining documentaries of the 20th century, The Atomic Cafe offers a darkly humorous glimpse into mid-century America, an era rife with paranoia, anxiety, and misapprehension.

Massachusetts Peace Action and American Friends Service Committee invite you to the first of a series of talks on Remembering Hiroshima! The first talk is based on Hibakusha and their quest for a nuclear weapon-free world. Hibakusha is the word coined by the Japanese for those who survived the atomic bombs. The word Hibakusha literally translates to bomb-affected-people.
Joseph Gerson, Director of AFSC’s Peace & Economic Security program is the author of With Hiroshima Eyes and Empire and the Bomb. He has worked closely with Hibakusha, the witness/ survivors of A- & H- bombs detonations in Japan and other nations for three decades. His talk will include photos of these courageous women and men, excerpts of their testimonies, and descriptions of their work for a nuclear weapons-free world.
