Hiroshma Essay, Research Paper

Hiroshima is the capital of Hiroshima Prefecture,

Southwestern Honshu, Japan. Hiroshima has warm. 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, Mrs.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 warning. 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 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 southwestern Honshu, Japan.

The Atomic bomb blast in 1945 destroyed three fifths of thep

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.
