Hiroshima-Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Exhibition


Regis University’s Dayton Memorial Library (DML) will host the Hiroshima-Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Exhibition from the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum during March 1-31, 2010.

The exhibit, sponsored by the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, features 27 replicas of drawings created by survivors of the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, 17 information posters, and dozens of other exhibit items.

Nate Matlock, archivist and administrator for the Regis University Center for the Study of War Experience, and Janet Lee, technical services librarian, are orchestrating the display at Regis University.

“The Regis University Center for the Study of War Experience explores the human cost of war, both in its immediate effects and its repercussions through time,” said Matlock. “Our partnership with the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum serves this end through the construction of an exhibit that tells the story of the atomic attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, emphasizing the personal tragedies and the enduring lessons that those tragedies have for us all.”

The exhibit is free and open to the public during normal DML operating hours. Call 303-458-0430 or visit http://www.regis.edu/library.htm for library information.
