Hiroshima Survivor Speaks Out

Victim talks about Nagasaki, Iwo Jima, and Hiroshima bombing

Was Hiroshima called for? Victims speak out.

The Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings were un-invited. They not only destroyed the cities, but killed the innocent civilians of each city. But what started all of this was the deception of Iwo Jima and Okinawa and they were just a set up to lure America into a sense of ownership over Japan, but Japan would soon strike back. But were they quick enough? No, Hiroshima ended the war, concerning Japan of what else they could inflict upon the lonesome island. The victims finally break the silence, talking about their experiences and how effectively it impacted them.

I interviewed the infamous Doctor Terufumi Sasaki. I asked many rhetorical questions. But the big one that I asked was :"Do you think the atom bomb was justified to be dropped?"

A:"I of course think the bomb should not be dropped. For I had sleepless nights and restless days. I am still appalled by those memories and how unrestrained they were. It left me with the scarring reality of the world. Therefore, the bomb should have never been made, making us innocent victims less likely to suffer the way we did."

Q: "If you weren't present when the bomb dropped, would you still have helped?"

A: "Of course. A city is like a family. We work as one, and no one is left behind. I would have gone back, regardless of how I got there. I would have still helped all those people in need, I would have still saved the people who needed saving, and I still would have gone about my normal things in the hospital, except the city is crawling with future patients.


Hiroshima and the effects in the human body

Justifying against the bomb being dropped, Hiroshima researcher and author of the book Hiroshima, John Hersey speaks the cold hard truth.

"Not one bit do I agree to the actions caused at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The amount of deaths, and the cause of deaths appalling. Reading this, you may not comprehend. Many people died of radiation sickness, a disease which came about 15 days after the bombing. The disease symptoms were falling hair, and keloids. The things that happened to people were extraordinarily horrible. A woman's skin on her hand slipping off like a glove, and the eyes of those soldiers melting when looking into the bomb. The cold hard truth hurts, but at least you know what is happening in your and how horrifying the reality of life is."
