Hibakusha Stories, a UN affiliated NGO, passes the legacy of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki to a new generation and empowers them with tools to build a world free of nuclear weapons. It is an initiative of Youth Arts New York in partnership with Peace Boat, the Hiroshima Peace Culture Foundation, the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs and New York Theatre Workshop. Hibakusha Stories provides the opportunity for New York City high school students to hear eyewitness accounts of one of the most significant events in human history— the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August of 1945. The survivors are called hibakusha.
