Nagasaki man shows scars from atomic bomb blast

Curated by

 

Struggling a bit with a left arm that has never straightened out, Sumiteru Taniguchi slowly peeled the undershirt off his frail 86-year-old body to show two visitors his scars from the atomic bomb attack on Nagasaki. Speaking in a weak voice with some effort, he told the story last month of wandering for three days in a daze, unaware of the seriousness of his injuries. Going in and out of consciousness, he could hear the nurses passing by in the hallway asking each other if the boy was still breathing.

 

 

  • Taniguchi hopes no one else will have to suffer the pain of nuclear weapons.
  • After so many years, his words are tinged with frustration.
  • Not a day goes by without pain.
