FLASH On august 6 1945 an atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima Thousands of people died instantly from the initial blast Others died later because of flash burns and radiation sickness Those who lived had to move away from their homes and toward the parade grounds and parks Any doctors that were uninjured had to work nonstop all day and night mending wounds Some people mysteriously die and others are unrecognizable because of the flash burns covering their bodies The few people that had survived the blast had to try to put their lives back to normal Homes had been destroyed and family members killed Now new people had started moving into Hiroshima once news spread that is was safe The book Hiroshima was an enlightening view of what went on during the atomic blast and the days after The part that sticks most in my mind was when Mr Tanimoto was trying to help burn victims on the shore of the river When he grabbed the one womans arm to pull her out to the boat he was using to transport injured people chunks of her skin slid right off I could visualize the skin coming off because of a similar but not nearly as extreme of an experience I had burned my arm on an oven rack and when I was wiping off my arm the skin peeled right off As I read the section I could imagine a large piece of skin peeling off of a human hand and I thought that I would lose my dinner Another thing that remained in my memory throughout the novel was that people put their beliefs before their injuries Mr Tanimoto mention that he was ashamed that he could walk when he saw all of the injured people lying about unable to move Dr Sasaki didnt sleep for the first three days because he knew it would be wrong to Amazingly though
