"Why did you choose this product?"
The personal accounts of the survivors of this tragedy written one year later after the bombing of Hiroshima is very moving and educational. The book is a quick read and I would recommend it. It is very good for educational purposes. Even though the personal accounts of the survivors in the book are 60+ years old, they demonstrate the destruction of nuclear weapons. This book is as relevant to the world today as it was when it was written....
ITEM#: 3038906On August 6, 1945, Hiroshima was destroyed by the first atom bomb ever dropped on a city. This book, John Hersey's journalistic masterpiece, tells what happened on that day. Told through the memories of survivors, this timeless, powerful and compassionate document has become a classic "that stirs the conscience of humanity" (The New York Times).
Almost four decades after the original publication of this celebrated book, John Hersey went back to Hiroshima in search of the people whose stories he had told. His account of what he discovered about them is now the eloquent and moving final chapter of Hiroshima.
