John Hersey î Hiroshima book

Urvivors this timeless powerful and compassionate document has become a classic that stirs the conscience of humanity The New York TimesAlmost four decades after the original publication of this cel I went old school with this one I printed out the original version of John Hersey's article from The New Yorker's Web site so I could read it in its original three columns per page format and surrounded by advertisements for Chesterfield cigarettes US Savings Bonds Old Overholt Straight Rye Whiskey Rosalind Russell in RKO's Sister Kenny Bell System Overseas Telephone Service and Knox the Hatter on Fifth Avenue at Fortieth StreetThis is the editorial note that ran with Hersey's story in the Aug 31 1946 issue of The New YorkerTO OUR READERSThe New Yorker this week devotes its entire editorial space to an article on the almost complete obliteration of a city by one atomic bomb and what happened to the people of that city It does so in the conviction that few of us have yet comprehended the all but incredible destructive power of this weapon and that everyone might well take time to consider the terrible implications of its use THE EDITORSHersey's book length article focuses primarily on six victims of the bombing Miss Toshiko Sasaki Dr Masakazu Fujii Mrs Hatsuyo Nakamara Father William Kleinsorge Dr Terufumi Sasaki and the Reverend Mr Kiyoshi Tanimoto tracking their lives from the morning of the bombing through the months of its aftermath It's a masterful piece of journalism and of a type little seen any The article has almost no attribution and few uotes Rather it uses a straightforward narrative style telling the story as it happened and the reader simply has to trust that Hersey did the footwork needed to compose his piece And it's obvious he didHersey gives almost no information about the US decision to bomb Hiroshima or the larger context of World War II but rather focuses solely on how the bombing and its aftermath affected the city's people The book is stronger as a result showing the full range of horrors caused by the dropping of an atomic bomb in particular on six people we come to know and care about deeplyIt speaks to Hersey's talents as a writer that despite the tragic subject matter and the physical and emotional turmoils he recounts we the readers don't want the book to end because that means leaving Miss Sasaki Dr Fujii Mrs Nakamura Father Kleinsorge Dr Sasaki no relation to Miss Sasaki and the Reverend Tanimoto behind We want to stay with them and make sure they're able to build new lives for themselvesThe book's last paragraph a school essay written by Toshio Nakamura who was 10 years old when the bomb was dropped is particularly heartbreaking and serves as a fitting coda for Hersey's piece It's short enough to uote here but really needs to be read in context It's the perfect ending to an important stirring work of journalism The entire book is highly recommended for all readers
