Three days after the first nuclear bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, young Kazuko Uragashira was on a train to her uncle’s house in the city of Nagasaki. Little did she know, that she would be walking into one of the worlds worst disasters. Kazuko Uragashira is one of the last remaining survivors of both nuclear blasts. There is an estimated 150 people who are thought to have been exposed to both bombings. Many of the single and double bombing survivors are now speaking out to why the Americans decided to bomb not one but two Japanese cities. The survivor’s times are running short and now time is ticking against them to get their voices out.

It would be interesting to talk to one of these people. Too bad we'll probably never get the chance.

this just further goes to show that in a situation like World War 2, nobody wins. countless lives are lost on both sides. and to prove what? that you are right and the other is worng? fighting never solves anything. when will society realize this, only time will tell.

I find it unbelievable that so many people were killed in this tragedy. Also, i am surprised that the 150 or so survivors haven't voiced their opinions until now.
