A humane presentation of the fateful day.
9 June 2006 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

Being once a former History student, history-relating subjects are often of interest to me. Especially if it's something which I had learnt in my past History classes. The fall of Japan in WWII was one of those things I learnt.

Imagine my surprise when I saw this on air here last year. Given it was also a good time to refresh somehow some of the events I had learnt from my History textbook, this show viewed the atomic bomb dropping on Hiroshima through the eyes of those who had survived to tell their story. Whatever I had understood in the History class was through the events in the textbook, this is more raw and humane for a change.

It's always scary to understand about the after-effects of the atomic bomb that often it's only those who experienced, and survived to tell the tale, will give a very different perspective. Even more terrifying, hearing from the survivors themselves. Yeah, often it's being discussed normally close to the WWII's anniversary that whether it is justified to drop the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to finally force Japan to end WWII in the Pacific region, but then, this is still a topic which is very touchy even till now.

Given I also remembered my father once went to Japan for business for some time and he did went to the memorial centre in Hiroshima and when he brought back the brochure, I almost felt sick. At the contents, that is. When it showed the images and the graphics in the brochure, I cannot really bear to see it after one look.

Often, the horrors of war remains in those who had went through it. It's always never nice.

If you are one of those who want to know how the whole thing went before WWII finally ended in the Pacific, this is recommended.
