About this submission
On August 7, 1945, President Harry S Truman told the American people that “we” had won the "greatest achievement of organized science in history".
One day before, Wataru Namba - a US-born citizen - narrowly survived the first atomic bomb dropped in world history.
"Hibakusha" is the Japanese word for "atomic bomb survivor".
This is his story of the day the bomb dropped.
