Abstract:

With Hiroshima Eyes punctures the haze of denial surrounding nuclear weapons and opens our eyes to the hard issues raised by the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It explores the complex relationships between official history, collective memory, racism in foreign policy, and moral imagination. With Hiroshima Eyes features testimony from the hibakusha, the survivors of the bombings, who remind us of the hell they endured - and of the passionate hope for human survival they still hold. It also reveals how the United States has used the threat of atomic weapons again and again (most recently in the Persian Gulf and North Korea) to intimidate nations and extend its control. But most importantly, it suggests how we - with the help of the hibakusha - can shake off the effects of denial and propaganda, look steadily at the horrors and hopes in our world, and find practical ways to rid the world of nuclear weapons.
