Knowing that we will soon lose the voices of our atomic bomb survivors, The Vow from Hiroshima serves as crucial testimony to the atrocious existence of nuclear weapons. To hear Setsuko Thurlow and Mitchie Takeuchi uncover meaning from their past instills an inherent value of human life and the planet for the next generations. Diving into the carefully prepared teacher guide not only makes this complex subject matter accessible to a range of younger viewers but also empowers educators to usher students into a future of advocacy and activism.
