How Survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki Organized for Nuclear Disarmament

How Survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki Organized for Nuclear Disarmament

By Becky Little

As a survivor of history’s deadliest atomic bombing, Setsuko Thurlow has a powerful case to make against nuclear weapons.

On the morning of August 6, 1945, the 13-year-old Thurlow reported to a military office in Hiroshima, along with other girls recruited to help with Japan’s wartime code breaking. While listening to an officer speak, she saw a burst of light out the window, and was hit with a blast that catapulted her through the air. When she came to, she was pinned under parts of the building she’d been in.
