Summary / Annotation

COMMUNITY REVIEWS

life in Hiroshima before the bomb submitted by camelsamba on June 22, 2015, 3:14pm This graphic novel / memoir provides insights into the lives of anti-war Japanese people in Hiroshima, struggling to maintain dignity in the face of cruelty (on top of the misery and privation everyone else also suffered).

"What takes real courage is to value life -- your own and everybody's!" p 93

This volume of Barefoot Gen details the events leading up to and immediately following the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. There are 10 volumes in the series, but AADL only owns the first 4. The rest can be requested through MEL.

Terrifying & Moving submitted by Eman Akhtar on July 17, 2019, 5:39pm Great commentary on the use of the nuclear bomb and Japanese militarism.
