Hiroshima survivor visits Corvallis Peace Tree

On May 27, 2021, local Corvallis Hiroshima survivor June Ikuko Terasaka Moore, came to visit and bless (with her and her family’s presence) our Peace Tree.

The Peace Tree was planted April 11, 2019 at the Oregon State University (OSU) Asian & Pacific Cultural Center (APCC) with the help of local Veterans For Peace member, Dr. Linda Richards, OSU’s School of History, Philosophy and Religion and the APCC. The tree planting honors Ms. Hideko Tamura Snider, a Medford peace advocate and Hiroshima survivor.

To learn more about Ms. Snider’s history and peace activism and about the Hiroshima Peace Tree project in Oregon, see this link.

Dr. Linda Richards (kneeling with a jar of peace cranes folded for June’s family) visits with June Ikuko Terasaka Moore beside the APCC Peace Tree.

For more details about this project, please email Dr. Richards: atomiclinda[at]gmail.com.
