UH-Manoa to hold symposium on war and peace

The University of Hawaii is set to hold a symposium on war and peace during the 1940s.

“Words of War, Lessons of Peace: A Multigenerational Symposium for Peacemaking” will feature the personal experiences and recollections of civilians impacted by World War II.

Among those scheduled to speak are Izumi Hirano, who survived the dropping of an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, and Helene Minehira, whose family was evicted from their home near Pearl Harbor solely on the basis of race.

The event is to start at 1 p.m. on Nov. 21, at the Manoa campus’ Architecture Auditorium.

Among its co-sponsors are the UH Manoa law school, the Center for Oral History and the Spark M. Matsunaga Institute for Peace & Conflict Resolution.
