October Regular Learning Session is an online lecture called “The Atomic Bomb Dropped on Hiroshima and Me” with Koji Ueda as a lecturer.
Mr. Ueda, a lecturer, was exposed to radiation in Hiroshima when he was three years old. As a non-memorized Hibakusha, Mr. Ueda has continued to testify not only in Japan but around the world, and he has continued to work tenaciously toward the realization of a nuclear-free world.
This time, “Thoughts on the Abolition of Nuclear Weapons – Do Not Repeat Hiroshima and Nagasaki Again” has been published. As written in the book, please listen to Ueda’s way of life, which is gentle, positive, and carrying through his belief without compromising.
