Peace Resource Center


The Center works to keep alive Barbara Reynolds’ legacy by fulfilling our mission "to foster and provide peace education in schools, communities and the world by building on our unique Hiroshima /Nagasaki Memorial Collection and other peace resources."
 

Barbara Reynolds was called “the flower of Hiroshima” as she sought to educate the world about the effects of the atomic bomb. She was an activist, author, and peace educator. In August, 1975 she opened the Peace Resource Center at Wilmington College to house the largest collection (outside of Japan) of materials related to the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and to teach peace skills to new generations.
