“I was nineteen. After breakfast I sat down at the balcony and I was knitting while babysitting 4 children from the neighborhood.
Then I felt this bright bright flash as if the sun fell down from the sky.

Following that was a loud roar that I had never heard before. ”

..December 2016.. ..Nagasaki..

“My mother carried me and my younger sister on her back while she held the hand of my three-year-old brother, while we tried to escape up the mountain. However, there were corpses everywhere. Some of the eyes were popped out from the bodies, some parent’s and child were holding each other and burnt black and dead. It was just inferno. Some were without heads.”

..November 2010.. ..Hiroshima..

“I did not even think I had been saved.
I was filled with hate for a long time.
But now, I devote my life to telling others my story.
It is my responsibility to teach younger generations
about the dignity of life and the importance of peace.”

-Suzuko Numata, Hiroshima atomic bomb survivor
