Hiroshima Diary: The Journal of a Japanese Physician, August 6-September 30, 1945 (Rev) Hiroshima Diary: The Journal of a Japanese Physician, August 6-September 30, 1945 by Michihiko Hachiya


My review


rating: 5 of 5 stars
A wonderful recollection of memories from one of the worst moments for mankind. A part of history we shouldn't forget, and must never repeat, told from within by the Director of a Hospital where many of the survivors later died due to the yet unknown effects of nuclear radiation. In spite of being a hospital's diary about such a terrible matter, the lecture is very entertaining, following the thoughts and investigations carried by all the workers and the few visitors that carried help and support, as well as some news from the rest of the world. A history of devastation and desperation that leaves the reader with the feeling that humans are good by nature (despite of the facts), and that human beings can do awesome things, and face any situation, with the help of hope and other people.
A must-read for any kind of person.
