Hiroshima Essay, Research Paper

Hiroshima is the capital of Hiroshima Prefecture, southwestern

Honshu, Japan. Hiroshima has warm, humid summers with July

temperatures. Hiroshima caught the attention of the world when a

U.S. plane dropped the first atomic bomb on the City, destroying

it on August 6,1945. The Atomic bomb blast in 1945 obliterated

three- fifths of the city within seconds and killed about 75,000

people. At exactly fifteen minutes past eight in the mourning,

on August 6, 1945 Japanese time, at the moment when the atomic

bomb flashed above Hiroshima.

At the time of the blast:Mrs.Huts Nakamura, a tailors

widow stood by the window of her kitchen, watching a neighbor

tearing down his house because it laid in path of an air-raid

defense free lane. Mrs. Huts Nakamura, who lived in the section

called Nobori-Cho got her three children, a ten year old

boy,Toshio, an eight year old girl yoke, and a five year old

girl, Mohawk out of bed and dressed them and walked with them

to the Military area known as the East Parade Ground. There she

unrolled some mats and the children laid down on them. They

slept until about two, when they were awakened by the roar of

the planes going over Hiroshima. As soon as the planes had

passed, mars.Nakamura started back with her children. They reached

home a little after two-thirty and she immediately turned on the

radio, which was broadcasting a fresh warnin!

g. She put the children in their bedrolls on the floor, laid

down herself at three o clock, and fell asleep at once. The

siren jarred her awake at about seven o clock, she arose and

hurried to the house of Mr.Nakamoto, the head of her

neighborhood Association and asked him what she should do. He

told her to remain at home unless an urgent warning. The

Prefectural Government convinced, everyone in Hiroshima that the

city would be attacked. Their house was 1,350 yards or three-

quarters of a mile, from the center of the explosion. Timbers

fell around her as she landed and a shower of tiles also fell

on her; everything became dark and she became buried. She heard

a child cry Mother,help me! and she saw her youngest child,

Mohawk the five year old buried up to her chest and unable to

move. As Mrs.Nakamura started Frantically to claw!

her way toward the baby, she couldn t see or hear anything of

her other children.

Mrs.Nakamura always was a strong person, she never thought

of the worst and always hoped for the best. Here is an example

of her strength, Mrs.Nakamura, although she was too ill to walk

she managed to return to Hiroshima alone, by electric car to

the outskirts, by foot from there. Mrs.Nakamura cared for her

children and everyone else. Her attitude was always pushing for

the good never wanting to give up. Mrs.Nakamura said,(she needed

nothing more to make her give up thinking, in spite of the

atomic bomb, that Japan still had a chance to win the war).

Mrs.Nakamura helped everyone through this time including herself.

Weakness occurred after the bomb had dropped. Mrs.Nakamura, who

had suffered no cuts or burns at all, though she had been

rather nauseated all through the week she and her children had

spent as guests of Father Kleinsorge!

and the other Catholics at the Novitlate. Mrs.Nakamura began

fixing her hair and noticed, after one stroke through her hair,

that her comb carried with it a whole handful of hair. Three

or four days past, she became bald and began living indoors,

practically hiding. Mrs.Nakamura daughter, Mohawk woke up feeling

week and tired and they both stayed on their bedrolls. Her son

and other daughter, who had shared every experience with her

during the after bombing, felt fine. They did not realize it,

but they were coming down with the strange, capricious disease

which became known as radiation sickness. Mrs.Nakamura laid

indoors with Mohawk. They both continued to be sick, Mrs.Nakamura

realized that their sickness was caused by the bomb. Mrs.Nakamura

was too poor to see a doctor and never knew exactly what the

matter was. Without any treatment at!

All they began to feel better. All the children had lost a

little hair but were well.

Hiroshima is the capital of Hiroshima prefecture,

southwestern Honshu, Japan. The Atomic bomb blast in 1945

obliterated three fifths of the city within seconds and killed

about 75,000 people. Mrs.Huts Nakamura, with her ten year old

boy Toshio, eight year old girl Yoke, and a five year old girl

Mohawk were strong through the whole situation. I chose

Mrs.Nakamura because she was a very strong and caring person who

never gave up for herself and her children. I also chose

Mrs.Nakamura because she is the one character who kept me

interested in the book. That is why I chose Mrs.Nakamura
