Unforgettable Fire

This August marks 73 years since the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings. To commemorate this, and also related to my previous post about the Maralinga nuclear tests, I’m sharing this extraordinary book of drawings by Hiroshima survivors.

They speak more directly and louder than any words can, so I will refrain from writing much. Suffice to say that the subject matter is not for the faint of heart, and that although most of the drawings are rather crude, they are likely to move you and stay with you for a long time.

The entire book is available online here: https://archive.org/details/UnforgettableFireDrawingsByAtomicBombSurvivors1967
