Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
August 6, 1945. Hiroshima, Japan. The first atom bomb was dropped on this city, killing a hundred thousand people. Considered a journalistic masterpiece, Hiroshima tells the story of six survivors during the days that immediately followed the bomb. It also includes a final chapter, Aftermath, written forty years afterward to explore the fates of those survivors. This timeless, powerful, and compassionate work has become a classic that stirs the conscience of humanity.

Review:
When the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, few could have anticipated its potential for devastation. Pulitzer prize-winning author John Hersey recorded the stories of Hiroshima residents shortly after the explosion and, in 1946, Hiroshima was published, giving the world first-hand accounts from people who had survived it. The words of Miss Sasaki, Dr. Fujii, Mrs. Nakamara, Father Kleinsorg, Dr. Sasaki, and the Reverend Tanimoto gave a face to the statistics that saturated the media and solicited an overwhelming public response. Whether you believe the bomb made the difference in the war or that it should never have been dropped, "Hiroshima" is a must read for all of us who live in the shadow of armed conflict.
