Hiroko Kada was just 9-years-old when the U.S. dropped an atom bomb on Hiroshima, Japan in 1945. Just a little over 2 miles away, Kada could hear, feel, and see the devastation it caused.

With the help of a translator, Kada told her story to a group at the Stamford Adult Education Center. She was joined by Shigeki Uda, who was in his mother’s womb when another bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, Japan just a few days later. Because people didn’t understand, Kada says survivors were treated differently even long after the bombings.

Both Kada and Uda are part of a nationwide organization of A-bomb survivors, working to ban nuclear weapons. They hope that educating people about events like Hiroshima and Nagasaki will motivate them to strive for peaceful world free of war.
