The Ever-Present Nuclear Threat, 70 Years After Hiroshima

These shows (VB #96.11&12) capture the 2015 memorialization of the thousands of people killed by bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Speakers and performers include Portland Taiko drumming, host Ronault "Polo" Catalani, and Michiko Kornhauser-- who was a school child in Japan when the bombs dropped in 1945. Kornhauser tells her personal and family history, and then sings an important Japanese peace song with the Tomodachi Chorus. Also on the programs are Marshall Islands activist Pastor Joe Enlet of the Chuuk Logos Community Church, Sahomi Tachibana's dance group, and anti-nuclear activist Carol Urner, who helped organize Portland's first Hiroshima Day commemoration in 1962. The speakers connected the past to the present and gave people ideas of things to do to make a difference. Closing out the program, Polo read letters from the Mayor of Hiroshima and Senator Jeff Merkley, turning the stage back to the Taiko drummers to wrap it up.

The event took place on August 6 at Portland's Japanese American Historical Plaza, organized by Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility. The two-part program was taped, edited and produced by Dan Handelman.
