Audio Book Summary

A journalistic masterpiece. John Hersey transports us back to the streets of Hiroshima, Japan on August 6, 1945-the day the city was destroyed by the first atomic bomb. Told through the memories of six survivors, Hiroshima is a timeless, powerful classic that will awaken your heart and your compassion. In this new edition, Hersey returns to Hiroshima to find the survivors-and to tell their fates in an eloquent and moving final chapter.

    A truly eye opening book, through instant disaster, through overwhelming trauma, people stood up. They took charge to help their fellow citizens through one of our histories most tragic events the people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki endured. A testament to the Japanese people.
