Hibakusha Stories helped produce a short film featured in the disarmament exhibit of the public tour route at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. This silent film conveys the importance of hibakusha testimony in 3 short minutes. Participating hibakusha, Toshiko Tanaka and Kunihiko Bonkohara were filmed at Dupuy’s Landing in Chelsea one of four private homes dedicated to hosting our beloved elders for nearly one decade. A key ingredient of Hibakusha Stories was creating an environment for comfort, care and sharing. After long days working in the schools, our friends were treated to home-cooked food by our master chef Hayato and relaxing surrounds were lasting bonds of friendship were formed and continue to grow.
