Professor David Fedman is an executive producer of a new documentary about the firebombing of Tokyo. Paper City tells the story of three survivors of the firebombing as they launch one final campaign to leave behind a record of this forgotten tragedy—before the last of them passes away. Professor Fedman would introduce the film and participate in a moderated discussion afterward.

This event is sponsored by the Weatherhead East Asian Institute.
