“War Makes Everyone Crazy”: Hiroshima Survivor Reflects on 69th Anniversary of U.S. Atomic Bombing

Sixty-nine years ago at 8:15 a.m., the United States dropped an atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. Destruction from the bomb was massive — shock waves, radiation and heat rays took the lives of some 140,000 people — nearly half of the town’s population. Three days later, the United States dropped a second atomic bomb on the Japanese Nagasaki killing another 74,000. At Hiroshima’s Peace Memorial Park and next to e A-bomb Dome (one of the few structures that withstood the blast) , blast survivor Koji Hosokawa, who was 17 years old at the time, talks with Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! His 13-year-old sister, Yoko, died in the bombing.

Amy Goodman (Democracy Now!): “This is almost 69 years later. It was the United States that dropped the atomic bomb. How do you feel when Americans come here (to Hiroshima)?”

Koji Hosokawa: “I hate war rather than the people of the United States. I hate war. War makes everyone crazy.”
