Hiroshima is a book with six accounts of survivors of the Hiroshima bombing.
I would recommend this book to all readers, as it is an important event in history and this book provides the story from a survivor's perspective.
This book is definitely worth reading because it shows the human beings willingness to live, even after experiencing ones worst time in life.
Stunning work. The sparse reporting tells the story of 5 people who survived the Hiroshima bombing and follows them for a year afterwards. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Kndl Fan
