Abstract

Abstract:

Brandon Shimoda writes about the lasting effects of the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki by the United States. From Keiji to Sadako, two children within two miles of the blast radius that survived the initial bombings, to Domanju, a mound within which rest the remains of 70,000 people killed by the bomb, Shimoda urges a departure from symbolism, a way of veiling oneself from the atrocity that was the atomic bomb.
