The only officially recognized survivor of both the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombs has passed away in Japan at age 93. But several others have been confirmed, and I interviewed one of them in Hiroshima in 1984, an amazing experience. According to press reports, the deceased said he had written to President Obama about banning nuclear arms. And he said he had recently been visited by director James Cameron to discuss a film project on atomic bombs.
On the left rail of this blog you will the book I wrote with Robert Jay Lifton, Hiroshima in America, which covers all of this and much more.
