A Hiroshima Story by David Swatling
On a sunny August morning in 1945, Keijiro Matsushima sat in his math class in Hiroshima. He looked out the window, saw two American bombers in the clear blue sky, and suddenly his world was torn apart. Now a retired English teacher, he fears young people today are no longer interested in his story. On a sunny June morning in Amsterdam, English teacher Kevin Hogan’s 11th graders are reading a novel about Hiroshima. They are the same age Mr. Matsushima was when the atomic bomb exploded. How will they react when they hear his story?
