A Quote
Fujie Urata Matsumoto: “The pumpkin field in front of the house was blown clean. Nothing was left of the whole thick crop, except that in place of the pumpkins there was a woman’s head. I looked at the face to see if I knew her. It was a woman of about forty. She must have been from another part of town – I had never seen her around here. A gold tooth gleamed in the wide-open mouth. A handful of singed hair hung down from the left temple over her cheek, dangling in her mouth. Her eyelids were drawn up, showing black holes where the eyes had been burned out…She had probably looked square into the flash and gotten her eyeballs burned.”

- Took Japan 3 hours to realize Hiroshima had been bombed
- US dropped about 49 practice bombs (known as pumpkin bombs) before nukings, killing 400 and injuring 1,200
Kayano Nagai: “I saw the atom bomb. I was four then. I remember the cicadas chirping. The atom bomb was the last thing that happened in the war and no more bad things have happened since then, but I don’t have my Mummy any more. So even if it isn’t bad any more, I’m not happy.”
Another Quote
-The cities that could have been bombed were Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Kyoto, Niigata and Kokura
- Kyoto wasn't destroyed because US Secretary of War enjoyed it on his honeymoon, so Nagasaki took it's place
- People disappeared (heat from bomb created shadows of people)
Even More Interesting Facts
“It [the bomb] should be used as soon as possible”
“It [the bomb] should be used on a military installation surrounded by houses or other buildings most susceptible to damage.”
“It [the bomb] should be used without explicit warning of the nature or the bomb.”
