Lecture Description

Dr. Krieger will share his experiences that led him to make a life-long commitment to work toward a more peaceful world. His experiences included early visits to the Hiroshima and Nagasaki Peace Memorial Museums, fighting against US involvement in the Vietnam war as a young army officer, and participating in Robert Hutchins’ Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions. He will present the case to eliminate nuclear weapons before they eliminate us, and talk about what each of us can do to help prevent future Hiroshimas and Nagasakis. He will also share some of his poems from his latest and forthcoming books.
