A three-day symposium opened Friday at Tufts University near Boston to explore ways to pass down to future generations messages from atomic-bomb survivors ahead of the 60th anniversary of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in World War II.

About 20 Japanese culture specialists in the United States will give presentations during the symposium, titled “Hiroshima-Nagasaki 2005: Memories and Visions,” being held with a film festival under the theme of “Global Hibakusha.”

Hibakusha, or atomic-bomb victims, are scheduled to give speeches on the second day.
