Book Nook: Nagasaki - Life After Nuclear War, by Susan Southard

Nov 7, 2015

The first atomic bomb was dropped on the city of Hiroshima in Japan in 1945. Shortly thereafter another bomb was detonated over the Japanese city of Nagasaki. Our war with Japan ended shortly thereafter.

Much has been written about what happened at Hiroshima. Much less has been said about Nagasaki. Susan Southard conducted extensive interviews with some residents of Nagasaki who survived that nuclear blast.

After you listen to this interview and hopefully, read her book I hope that you'll agree that what happened to these innocent people was horrifying and wrong.  We rarely hear from the survivors of tragedies like this one. Please listen.
