The A-BOMB and Humanity

Exhibit is Now Open to the Public

In cooperation with our friends in Japan, we present a look back at the horrific last chapter of the Second World War. Nihon Hidankyo is the only national organization of A-bomb survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (Hibakusha) in Japan.   It is formed with Hibakusha organizations in all 47 prefectures. Nihon Hidankyo has created thirty panels outlining the two atomic bombs dropped on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August of 1945. 

Since its founding, Hidankyo has worked: 1) for a total ban on and the abolition of nuclear weapons; 2) for state compensation for the damage caused by the bombing; 3) to improve government’s policies and measures on the relief of the Hibakusha; and 4) to promote solidarity with nuclear victims in the world.  In order to ensure there will be no more Hibakusha, it has advocated the need to abolish nuclear weapons through various means, including testifying their experience and the inhumanity of nuclear weapons in numerous occasions in Japan and internationally, at the grass root level and in major international events.

 ZENSday: Free Meditation & Yoga

Every Wednesday at the Peace Museum!

Meditation, understood properly, is a process to create a meditative state. Once this meditative state is achieved, where there is serenity, calmness and peace we are able to manifest the intrinsic goodness of our heart. This expression of our heart’s goodness makes peace more dynamic and life-affirming, and, in its wake, brings unity and harmony to this world. Kamlesh Patel

February 23:  U.S. global engagement and the military

The global power balance is rapidly evolving, leaving the United States at a turning point with respect to its level of engagement and the role of its military. Some argue for an “America First” paradigm, with a large military to ensure security, while others call for a more assertive posture overseas. Some advocate for a restoration of American multilateral leadership and a strengthened role for diplomacy. Still others envision a restrained U.S. role, involving a more limited military. How does the military function in today’s international order, and how might it be balanced with diplomatic and foreign assistance capabilities?

Five AmeriCorps volunteers recently descended on our wonderful but chaotic peace museum library and digital collection and completely reorganized it for us!  Guided by Charlotte Chinn of the Ohio Reading Corps, the group did a wonderful job of cataloging scores of new books and creating some much-needed order across the library.

This included organizing the recent years' editions of winners and nominees of the Dayton Peace Literacy Awards.  The books are now in order, making each one easy to locate on the shelves for anyone in the community who wishes to do research or borrow from our growing collection.

Ted Studebaker


Ted Studebaker


Click on the photo below to watch the video

This is the ABC News account of the story of Ted Studebaker, just after he was killed in Viet Nam in 1971. It was resurrected from partial film elements found in both the Brethren Historical Library and Archives in Elgin, IL and the Archives at Manchester College, North Manchester, IN and re-edited to replicate the original broadcast.

Ted Studebaker

Ted Studebaker (born September 29, 1945, outside of Dayton, Ohio) was a pacifist and conscientious objector who served as an agricultural worker during the Vietnam War and was executed by North Vietnam in 1971.

Studebaker was the 7th child of eight born on a farm in the small town of West Milton, Ohio. He was a devout member of the Church of the Brethren, and also excelled in sports and played football in high school as well as in college where he attended the small liberal arts school Manchester College in Indiana. He then attended Florida State University for two years pursuing his graduate degree in social work before he left for Vietnam. He also had a great love for music and was a guitarist.

While in Vietnam he volunteered with the Vietnam Christian service where he volunteered for two years working with a Montagnard hill tribe where he helped them with agricultural production. 

He was killed on April 26, 1971 by North Vietnamese when they first attacked the volunteers’ house with rockets and then invaded. The soldiers did not know who Studebaker was, they merely saw him as an American and therefore a threat and so he was executed. The lives of his wife and other volunteers were spared.
