Eyewitness testimony of the Hiroshima bomb

These "Voice of Hibakusha" are eyewitness accounts of the bombing of Hiroshima.

Very sobering and terrible accounts of the actual event of Hiroshima nuclear bombing. I think we negate the reality of the suffering that occurs during war and when discussing the use of nuclear weapons, instead wanting a bomb to just solve our problems.

Very moving accounts indeed. You are right, people today have forgotten what a nuclear weapon is truly capable. But there are still quite a few people who remember what happened and the after effects of nuclear weapons to deter its use in this day and age. I wonder what would happen when these people pass away. I just hope this generation is smarter than those who dropped the bomb and the it is never forgotten.

I hear that the musem in Hiroshima is really moving and has a lot of exhibits and pictures about the devastation.

Hiroshima and Nagasaki are just symbols of what we are capable of doing to each other under the right circumstances.
