Annual Commemoration of the Atomic Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

August 8 • 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Stewart Prager, professor emeritus of astrophysical sciences at Princeton University,  and co-founder of the Physicists Coalition for Nuclear Threat Reduction will give the keynote talk “Opposing the Increasing Peril of Nuclear Weapons” for the in-person annual commemoration of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

The program will include music from The Solidarity Singers of the New Jersey State Industrial Union Council, as well as origami crane folding with instruction for children. Origami cranes are the Japanese symbol for globally banning nuclear weapons. The program will end with a candle lighting and a moment of silence.

The Princeton Public Library is co-sponsoring the event, which begins at 7 p.m. in the community room. Weather permitting, beginning at 6 p.m., attendees are invited to join a BYO picnic in Hinds Plaza. No alcohol, please.
