Anniversary of Contrast: the 75th Year of UN Founding and Atomic Bombings

August 6 @ 8:00 am - August 9 @ 5:00 pm

The Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) is reflecting on two of the most pivotal events in world history on their 75th anniversaries: the founding of the United Nations and the dropping of A-bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in an 11 sign lawn exhibit on the Walnut street side of the Newton Free Library from August 6 to 9.
The exhibit presents several perspectives on the hopes people and organizations held, in 1945, for the future of a global organization committed to maintaining world peace.  The exhibit ends with the Sadako Sasaki story and peace cranes near the library Peace Garden.
You might want to bring a seat.
The exhibit is based on a timeline of events created by three WILPF members and posted on wilpfus.org under the Disarm committee
