“The basis of peace is for people to understand the pain of others.”
Susan Southard, Nagasaki: Life After Nuclear War

“Like everyone else in Nagasaki that day, Yoshida’s immediate survival and degree of injury from burns and radiation depended entirely on his exact location, the direction he was facing in relation to the bomb, what he was wearing, and what buildings, walls, trees, or even rocks stood between him and the speeding force of the bomb’s titanic power.”
Susan Southard, Nagasaki: Life After Nuclear War

“Like countless other hibakusha, they lived a split life: On the outside, they worked, got married, and had children. On the inside, their self-imposed silence helped contain their grief, guilt, and devastating memories of the bombing. Living this divided life allowed them to move on.”
Susan Southard, Nagasaki: Life After Nuclear War
