Japan's Atomic Bomb Survivors - 12 Apr 2015
As the 70th anniversary of the world's first nuclear attack nears, many survivors still find it too painful to talk about. But with their ranks dwindling, others are determined to pass on their experiences to younger generations. A U.S. bomber dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, killing about 140,000 by the end of the year, out of the 350,000 who lived in the city. The city still has some 60,000 survivors but their average age is approaching 80.
