  • We listen back to a conversation with Hideko Tamura Snider, a Medford woman who survived the bombing in Hiroshima. She has made it her life’s work to stop nuclear bombs from being used again.

 

  

  • We revisit an interview with Amelie Diamant-Holmstrom. She and her two sisters were 13 when they left their parents behind and got on a boat to the U.S. to escape the Nazis. The triplets had grown up in Vienna, fled to Paris and eventually landed in Portland. Holmstrum is featured in the Ken Burns documentary about an American Unitarian couple who helped thousands of people escape from Europe.
