    But the city as she had known it no longer existed All around, thick layers of splintered glass, metal dust, and twisted wire covered the ground, along with scorched corpses staring upward or facing down as though sleeping Hundreds of men, women, and teenaged students who had climbed out of the factory rubble staggered across the grounds, half naked

    Last year when I read A Dictionary of Mutual Understanding, I realized how little I knew about Nagasaki, particularly in the era of World War II Most of the focus goes to Hiroshima, and then the second bomb gets mentioned in passing As I prepare to lead a book club discussion on the novel, I wantedbackground information Enter this book I learned quite a bit a

    The signature line of one of the atomic bomb survivors, who participated in educating youth about the bombing, whose life is one of the five main survivors lives followed in this account says a lot of what needs to be said The basis of peace is for people to understand the pain of others With all the reading I thought I d done I should have known the word hibakusha an

    Won this book in a goodreads giveaway.This is both a depressing and exhilarating read Depressing for what really happened the event itself, the horrific aftermath, the fact that so much was hidden or minimized for so many years Exhilarating for the fact that the few who did survive were able to step forward with their stories, with data and facts, with photos and physical proo

    Not just the story of the bomb and its immediate aftermath, but what happened after Southard follows six different survivors who were teenagers at the time of the bomb, through their terrible injuries and recoveries, and their lives as bomb survivors Although there was a lot of stigma around this status as survivors, they became speakers and activists some soon after, some not until they were quite old

  8. Chris Blocker Chris Blocker says:

    Nagasaki Life After Nuclear War is a haunting account of the second atomic bomb to fall on a civilian populace As the title implies, this book goes far beyond the events of August 9, 1945, though it is in the initial weeks and months after the bombing that the story of Nagasaki is most gripping Southard has clearly devoted significant time and energy researching the bombing, but she does an admirable job keepin

    Summary This was a difficult book to read, but incredibly well written and worthwhile.I hoped to write a review of this book on August 9th, the 70th anniversary of the day an atomic bomb was dropped on the city of Nagasaki Unfortunately, life interfered, but this horrific event still deserves to be remembered today Drawing on extensive interviews, the author is able to share the stories of five survivors, from the time o

    The remaining survivors of the nuclear bomb attacks at Hiroshima and Nagasaki are dwindling The author has done a very good job of weaving the history of the attack at Nagasaki with the stories of five survivors Although the subject is difficult and sad, I think it s important that we don t forget what happened there and why The historical record after 70 years is showing that the bombs were used with little understanding of the
