On August 6, 1945, Hiroshima was destroyed by the first atom bomb
ever dropped on a city. This book, John Hersey''s journalistic
masterpiece, tells what happened on that day. Told through the
memories of survivors, this timeless, powerful and compassionate
document has become a classic "that stirs the conscience of
humanity" (The New York Times).
Almost four decades after the original publication of this
celebrated book, John Hersey went back to Hiroshima in search of
the people whose stories he had told. His account of
what he discovered about them is now the eloquent and moving final
chapter of Hiroshima.
