The Nuclear Age Peace Foundation will honor Setsuko Thurlow with the NAPF Distinguished Peace Leadership Award at the 33rd Annual Evening for Peace on October 25, 2015, in Santa Barbara, California.
Setsuko was 13 years old when the United States dropped an atomic bomb on her city of Hiroshima. Ms. Thurlow, like other Hibakusha, (atomic bomb survivors), through years of struggle for survival and literally rebuilding lives from ashes, has made it her life’s work to tell the story of what happened that day so that “…no human being should ever have to repeat our experience of the inhumane, immoral and cruel atomic bombing.” For seventy years and throughout the world, Setsuko has spoken of the horrors of nuclear weapons and the moral imperative to abolish them if we are to ensure a safe and peaceful world for our children and grandchildren. “I am committed to share the warning of Hiroshima until my last breath.”
