Thursday, August 6—11 a.m. (JST)

In commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, join a conversation on what today’s audiences can learn and build on from the story of Floyd Schmoe, a lifelong grassroots activist for peace. The conversation will build on the documentary Houses for Peace (2018), that tells the story of Schmoe, who traveled with a diverse group of volunteers to the atomic-bombed city of Hiroshima over 70 years ago to build houses for survivors of the atomic bomb and their families. 

The panel and Q&A will be moderated by Dr. Gail Nomura, Professor at the University of Washington, and feature 75-year-old atomic bomb survivor Koko Kondo, who spent time with Schmoe as a young girl, as well as Kumiko Ogoshi Takai, the documentary’s director. They will be joined by Clement Hanami, VP of Exhibitions and Art Director at JANM, Takuo Takigawa, Director of Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, and Mike Carr, CEO of the Battleship Missouri Memorial. 


The documentary is available to stream now on NHK WORLD-JAPAN’s video on demand service.
