In 1996, a box was uncovered at the home of a parishioner of All Souls Unitarian Church in Washington D.C. In that box were nearly 50 colorful drawings made by children as thanks for gifts received from the church fifty years earlier. Not many people in the church knew the story behind these pictures, they only knew they were made by school children in Japan after World War II.
The story behind the film 'Pictures from a Hiroshima School Yard' is inspiring - it reminds us that hope and peace are within reach. And, that a deep and heartfelt response by one church to a suffering community can lead to amazing things. Come and see the film on Friday, November 15, 2013 at All Souls Church.
