Untitled Document


On August 6, 1945, the first Atomic bomb is dropped from an American plane on the 245000 residents of Hiroshima. Most of the city destroyed and thousand of its inhabitant die. Some of his citizens survive and suffer the debilitating effects of terrible burns and radiation illness. During the evening of August 6, the survivors struggle to endure and help each other. The city is a ball of flame and the park is filled with radiation rain and whirlwinds. The injured and dying are so numerous that the doctors no longer help the badly injured because they are not going to survive. This book, John Hersey’s journalistic masterpiece, tells what happened on that day. Told through the memories of survivors, this timeless, powerful and compassionate document has become a classic “that stirs the conscience of humanity”. The 31,000 word article was published later the same year by Alfred A. Knopf as a book.


John Hersey (1914-1993) was a Pulitzer Prize winning American writer and journalist considered one of the earliest practitioners of the so-called New Journalism. Before writing Hiroshima, Hersey had been a war correspondent in the field, writing for life magazine and “The New Yorker”. He followed troops during the invasion of both Italy and Sicily during World War-II. Hersey was one of the first Western journalists to view the ruins of Hiroshima after the bombing. Shortly before writing “Hiroshima”, Hersey published his novel of “Men and War”, an account of war stories seen through the eyes of soldiers rather than a war correspondent.
