Online Conversation and Q&A: "Houses for Peace: Exploring the Legacy of Floyd Schmoe"
[Wednesday, August 5—7 P.M. (PDT) | 4 p.m. (HST)
Thursday, August 6—11 a.m. (JST)]

In commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, join a conversation on what today’s audiences can learn and build on from the story of Floyd Schmoe, a lifelong grassroots activist for peace. The conversation will build on the documentary Houses for Peace (2018), that tells the story of Schmoe, who traveled with a diverse group of volunteers to the atomic-bombed city of Hiroshima over 70 years ago to build houses for survivors of the atomic bomb and their families. The panel and Q&A will feature 75-year-old atomic bomb survivor Koko Kondo, who spent time with Schmoe as a young girl, as well as Kumiko Ogoshi Takai, the documentary’s director, Clement Hanami, VP of Exhibitions and Art Director at JANM, and Mike Carr, CEO of the Battleship Missouri Memorial. The program will be available in with simultaneous audio interpretation in both English and Japanese.

The documentary is available to stream now on NHK WORLD-JAPAN’s video on demand service: https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/ondemand/video/3016023/
