Transcript of Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki In the year of 1943, the Sasaskis of the Sasaki barber shop gave birth to a baby girl in the middle of the night on January 7th. The year that Sadako was born became very hard for their family with the war. Her father was drafted into the military and helped injured soldiers who were sent to the hospital. On august 6th, 1945 (Sodako was two and the world's first atomic bomb was detonated over Hiroshima, and Sodako's family was very much effected. On the morning of August 7th, after people heard the all-clear and began to move out of their bomb shelters, Sodako and her mother and her grandmother and brother were having breakfast together. It was seven AM. A blinding light, and a thunderous blast attacked the whole city, including the small family. The house toppled but thankfully the whole family escaped from the building safely. Sodakos grandmother returned to the house to get something, and was never seen again.
Fires were ignighting and "Black Rain" began to fall from the sky, leaving black splotches on everyone's clothing. Sodako and her family fled onto a small boat to escape the fires. Thankfully, they all survived and Sodako re-entered into elementary school after the war ended, and their family re-opened their barber shop. This family was lucky to only loose one member. 140,000 people were killed in Hiroshima, and another 80,000 in Nagasaki. In 1945 towards the final stages of World War II the united states cuntucted two nuclear bombs that the united states dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, First bomb "Little Man" was on August 6, 1945 on the city of Hiroshima. The second bomb "Fat Man" on the city of Nagasaki on August 9, 1945. These two events are the only active deployments of nuclear weapons in war to date.[1] Within the first two to four months of the bombings, the acute effects killed 90,000–166,000 people in Hiroshima and 60,000–80,000 in Nagasaki. [2] During the following months, large numbers died from the effect of burns, radiation sickness, and other injuries.
