Yukimi Dohiさん

I think it is important for us to know and remember what A-bomb survivors experienced, but at the same time, it is important to know that there were a lot of people who couldn’t even talk about their experiences.

Syouso Kawamotoさん

There were about 2,000 children who didn’t survive, even though they weren’t exposed to the A-bombing. I decided to be a storyteller to let people know what real war was like for them.

History goes on, and the past and the present are never separated. We need to realize it and pass what happened down to the next generation.

I’ll convey survivors’ A-bomb experiences not in their copied words but in my own words by understanding their spirits, so that my words will stay in the minds of the next generation.

I haven’t experienced war, so I can talk about the atomic bombing with the same viewpoint as young people, which I think is significant.
