August 6, 1945. Hiroshima, Japan. The first atom bomb was dropped on this city, killing 100,000 people. Considered a journalistic masterpiece, Hiroshima tells the story of 6 survivors during the days that immediately followed the bomb. It also includes a final chapter, "Aftermath," written 40 years afterward to explore the fates of those survivors. This timeless, powerful, and compassionate work has become a classic that stirs the conscience of humanity.More
