Objectivity in Hiroshima At 815 AM on August 6 1945 the President of the United States of America ordered the dropping of an atomic bomb over Hiroshima causing the death of an estimated 66000 people The journalist John Hersey wrote a 30000 word essay in 1946 entitled Hiroshima which was later turned into a book In 1985 Hersey added chapter five which tells the stories of the six survivors lives after the bomb was dropped While writing Hiroshima John Hersey was supremely objective by not conveying any personal feelings about sympathy for the habashuka pro-American beliefs or judging the use of the bomb There were many dead in the gardens At a beautiful moon bridge he passed a naked living woman who seemed to have been burned from head to toe and was red all over 51 John Hersey explains this situation in a matter-of-fact way not describing the dead or seeming sympathetic toward the burned woman Instead he describes the moon bridge as beautiful and is completely unemotional to the facts Hersey could have stated that it was terrible that the woman was burned from head to toe or that it was a shame but he did not Hersey also succeeded in not expressing any type of pro-Americanism in this book It was several days before the survivors of Hiroshima knew they had company because the Japanese radio and newspapers were being extremely cautious on the subject of the strange weapon 57 Hersey again gives only the facts and does not express any emotion in this quote on American company in Hiroshima and the other city that was bombed Nagasaki In no way did Hersey give his own opinion on the matter that was going on during this time John Hersey accomplished the task of not putting across personal opinions on whether he thought the bomb should have been dropped At two minutes after eleven oclock in the morning of August 9th
