In this interview from 2011, Dr. Hiromi Hasai describes the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Japan on August 6, 1945 by the U.S. during World War II. Hasai explains that he was shocked with the tens of thousands of dead bodies that surrounded him in the city and he describes how everything in Hiroshima was destroyed that day. After surviving the Atomic-bombing, Hasai kept his stories about the attack a secret while he conducted research on nuclear physics. Yet after 2008, Hasai felt that it was necessary to discuss his experience as a survivor so that people could remember the tragedy. Through his firsthand account of the bombing and his years of research, Hasai believes that the only purpose that nuclear research serves is total destruction of human life.
