To commemorate San Diego’s 14th Annual International Peace and Humanity Day, the San Diego World-wide Initiative to Safeguard Humanity (SD-WISH) and the San Diego-Yokohama Sister City Society (SDYSCS) are organizing a special online broadcast.
This year will feature an interview with Olga Ilinska, a Kyiv-born Ukrainian native, linguist, and translator fluent in English, Japanese, and Russian languages. Born in July 1986, just two months after the Chernobyl incident, Olga experienced the potential dangers of nuclear incidents from a young age. Her journey as a survivor and her escape from Ukraine during the Russian invasion highlight the ongoing threat of nuclear war.
The online broadcast will also include the symbolic ringing of the San Diego Friendship Bell by SD-WISH co-founder and Hiroshima survivor Mike Kawamura, a message from SD-WISH co-founder Dr. Akiko Mikamo from Hiroshima, and the reading of letters from the mayors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The ceremony will continue with the interview with Olga Ilinska produced by the San Diego High School Japan Club.
Matthew Pilger, an SD-WISH Youth Ambassador and Sophomore at Mission Bay High School, will conduct the ceremony.
The online broadcast will be available for viewing on SD-WISH’s official website , Facebook, and YouTube channel.
