Gen saga in postwar Hiroshima continues. When you think you have seen the last appaling thing something worst is awaiting for you about the corner. The dreadfulness of it all is counterbalanced by Gen's will to live and the common support between him and his remaining family members.This should be mandatory reading about the dreadful consequences of nuclear weapons. To think modern weapons are many times more powerful than the one dropped in Hiroshima is a most horryfying thought.
