Hiroshima and Nagasaki were the first cities to experience the horror of nuclear weapons. Both were devastated in an instant, and tens of thousands of lives were lost. Many of those who managed to survive still suffer today from disorders attributable to A-bomb radiation. The survivors’ long-held wish is that no one else ever suffers as they did.

 

The Hiroshima-Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Photo Poster Exhibition will be displayed at the Mabee-Simpson Library on the Lyon College campus from October 1 to 31, 2008.

Bunraku Bay Puppet Troupe is the only troupe in the United States that performs the traditional Japanese puppetry known as Bunraku. The performers of the Bunraku Bay Puppet Troupe all have been trained in Japan by artists from the 170-year-old Tonda Puppet Troupe in Shiga Prefecture, northeast of the old capital of Kyoto, and the Imada Puppet Troupe and Kuroda Puppet Troupe--both more than 300 years old--of Iida City in Nagano Prefecture in central Japan. The Bunraku Bay Puppet Troup is directed by Professor Martin Holman of the Japanese Studies Program of the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri.
