Seattle’s annual peace event honoring the victims of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, “From Hiroshima to Hope,” will be from 6 PM – 9 PM on Sunday, August 6th. This will mark the 72nd anniversary of the atomic bombings and the 75th anniversary of Executive Order 1066, which led to the internment and confiscation of property of American citizens of Japanese descent on the West Coast of the U.S. This event will feature musical performances, speakers, and a candle-lit lantern floating ceremony. It will be held just south of the Seattle Public Theater at the Bathhouse on Green Lake’s northwest shore at West Green Lake Drive North and Stone Ave North, and is free and open to the public.
