Seventy-six years ago on August 15, 1945, Japan surrendered after the atomic attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The surrender ceremony was on September 2. Just war scholars Marc LiVecche of the Institute on Religion and Democracy and Providence and the Stockdale Ethics Center at the US Navy Academy and Joseph Capizzi of the Institute on Human Ecology at Catholic University will reflect on the ethics behind the atom bomb, the surrender, and Japan’s reconstruction. Their talk will be at 6:30 pm at the IRD office. Food and drink will be available starting at 5:30 pm. Join us for thoughtful conversation and mingling with the Providence community.
