Time and Location



Kunhardt Film Foundation (KFF) recently released its first original documentary:

The Silent Witness: A Survivor’s Story of Hiroshima.

KFF invite you to watch the harrowing account of Tomiko Morimoto West, a 13-year-old girl living in Hiroshima when the first atomic bomb was dropped on Japan. 78 years later, Tomiko is sharing her story with the public in the hope of deterring future conflict and the devastation caused by war.

To support the film’s use in high school and college classrooms, KFF has created a discussion and education guide to deepen understanding of the power of personal narrative and provide a compelling entry point to discuss topics such as the tragedy and trauma of war, personal resilience, and the interplay of history, ethics, and storytelling.
