That Day Now - Keiko Ogura, Official Storyteller of Hiroshima

October 23, 4:30 p.m.
Gifford Auditorium

That Day NowMs. Ogura is the official a-bomb storyteller for the city of Hiroshima and has spent decades traveling Japan and the world telling others about her experience and promoting nuclear nonproliferation. She was 8 years old when the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, and she is one of the few survivors old enough at the time of explosion to remember the events clearly. Since 1984, Ogura has led Hiroshima Interpreters for Peace (HIP), which provides free-of-charge tours in Hiroshima informing the public about the atomic bomb and connecting them to a-bomb survivors.
