There never was a good war or a bad peace. ~Ben Franklin
TPF is sponsoring a display of a photo exhibit on the horrors of atomic warfare in WWII, with a 1/2 lecture on the meaning of atomic warfare by Dr. Jeremy Kuzmarov (lecture on 3 dates).
"At this time in U.S. history many are forgetting the horror of nuclear weapons, and some are even suggesting our country develop new nuclear weapons. Some of the images are disturbing, but that is the reality of nuclear weapons."
This is a traveling exhibit, on display for up to two weeks at a time. Entrance is free, and we encourage youth to attend (ages 9 and up).
In August 1945, Hiroshima and Nagasaki each were completely destroyed by a single nuclear weapon, bringing about the loss of about 200,000 precious lives. The Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum has developed a collection of posters concerning the conditions of the A-bomb damage including the A-bomb mushroom clouds and the A-bomb dome with the intent of passing the reality of the A-bombings on to as many people as possible and to heighten the awareness of peace.
The schedule for the display and associated talks:
Saturday, August 4th from 1:00PM to 3:00PM
Sunday, August 5th from 1:00PM to 4:00PM (after Humanist Sunday Services)
Monday, August 6th starting at 7:00PM
Thursday, August 9th , starting at 7:00PM
with a 1/2 lecture on the meaning of atomic warfare by Dr. Jeremy Kuzmarov (lectures on 3 dates, Sunday 1pm, Monday 7pm, and Thursday 7pm).
The Venue for the Photo Exhibit & Talks:
The Unitarian Universalist Church of the Restoration is located at 1314 N. Greenwood Ave, at the corner of Oklahoma Street, in Tulsa (just north of OSU-Tulsa campus and just south of Pine St.).
TPF is a non-denominational civic society, loosely affiliated with this church, which graciously provides us with office space and the use of their sanctuary.
