“That Day Now” with Keiko Ogura, Official Storyteller of Hiroshima

Monday, October 23, 2017, 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

That Day Now, Keiko Ogura

The Douglas Biklen Landscape of Urban Education Lecture Series

That Day Now, Keiko OguraKeiko Ogura is the official a-bomb storyteller for the city of Hiroshima and has spent decades traveling Japan and the world telling others about her experience and promoting nuclear nonproliferation. She was 8 years old when the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, and she is one of the few survivors old enough at the time of explosion to remember the events clearly. Since 1984, Ogura has led Hiroshima Interpreters for Peace (HIP), which provides free-of-charge tours in Hiroshima informing the public about the atomic bomb and connecting them to a-bomb survivors.

Part of That Day Now. Across many Schools and Colleges, and in partnership with the extended Syracuse community, Syracuse University will examine the current relevance of the 1945 atomic attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan through a series of public events and exhibitions in September and October.

Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) will be available for the event. Parking available in the University Avenue garage. Please contact us with requests for accessibility and accommodations.
