One Day in Hiroshima

One Day in HiroshimaWritten by Dr. Nanao Kamada.
Professor Emeritus of Hiroshima University, and a board member of the Japanese branch of IPPNW (International Physicians for Prevention of Nuclear War).

One Day in Hiroshima was written from the experiences of a real-life Obaa-chan (grandmother). In response to questions from children, a grandmother who is an A-bomb survivor answers about the effects of radiation and health hazards caused by the atomic bomb.
