      Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, Bloomington Branch presents:
       
      WHITE LIGHT, BLACK RAIN:
      THE DESTRUCTION OF HIROSHIMA AND NAGASAKI

      Documentary film by Steven Okazaki
       
      THURSDAY, AUGUST 6TH
      7:00 PM
      MONROE COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARY AUDITORIUM
       
      On August 6th and 9th, 1945, two atomic bombs vaporized 210,000 people in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Those who survived are called "hibakusha"--people exposed to the bomb--and there are an estimated 200,000 living today. Today, with the threat of nuclear weapons of mass destruction frighteningly real- the world's arsenal capable of repeating the destruction at Hiroshima 400,000 times over, Oscar® award-winning filmmaker Steven Okazaki revisits the bombings and shares the stories of the only people to have survived a nuclear attack.

      Discussion led by Reverend John Gaus, a witness to Nagasaki, and David Keppel, in the context of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty.
