Shadows of the Survivors

@ VOL 107 ON OCT 30, 2013

When the atomic bomb hit Hiroshima, people's shadows were permanently scorched in to their surroundings. Rikako Nagashima and her team contacted 23 survivors and took copies of their shadows. They then placed these shadows around Hiroshima as a memorial and to spread awareness of what happened. From Peace Shadow Project's website we can see where these survivors were, hear their stories, and leave them a personal message. (in Japanese with English subtitles)

Sokol Vodňany

BY DANA SLADKÁ
@ VOL 3 ON JUN 17, 2016

The Sokol movement (from Czech word for falcon) is an all-age gymnastics organization founded in Prague in 1862. It was based upon the principle of "a strong mind in a sound body." Another principle was also "neither gain nor fame" ("Ni zisk, ni slávu") - and this theme we took as the topic of our 2. Pecha Kucha Night (see our picturesque poster;).
