Abstract

In August 1985, the world recognized the fortieth anniversary of the greatest single human-made disaster in history - the exploding of the first atom bomb in the Japanese city of Hiroshima. It is an expanding ripple of the tragedy that although those forty and under were not even born when the bombing occurred, they have lived in the ominous shadow of its implications all their lives. In his important work Hiroshima, John Hersey makes it clear that the bomb destroyed more than a city; it changed life on personal, natural, and societal levels. For any meaningful account of such a disaster, these three levels must be examined alongside the cold statistical records of numbers and area affected.
