Accouncement for "With Hiroshima Eyes: The Hibakusha Art of Junko Kayashige"

AFSC is proud to have arranged the display of the Hibakusha art of Junko Kayashige at Harvard University this October.

When the Atomic Bomb was dropped on Hiroshima City on August 6, 1945, Junko Kayashige had just entered elementary school. A Hiroshima City native, she was in a home one mile from where the A-bomb hit. Kayashige survived, badly injured, but lost several close members of her family.
