A timely reminder

When we see through the eyes of our enemy, they may cease to remain our enemy. Anyone who would consider the use of nuclear weapons could read (or listen) to this powerful story and come away with a change of heart.

A child's memory of Nagasaki after bomb

I was very moved by this book, the personal story of a young girl who was jut 6 years old when the atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki. She and her family lost their home and had to endure the horrors of burns and radiation sickness. I think that the book was originally written for younger readers, but I think the story is one everyone should know. Sachiko survived and then dedicated her life to telling her story in the hopes that the world will never again see such horror.
