Nagasaki and the Hibakusha Experience of Sumiteru Taniguchi:
The Painful Struggles and Ultimate Triumphs of Nagasaki Hibakusha
Introduction by Peter J. Kuznick
Sumiteru Taniguchi was one of the “lucky” ones. He lived a long and productive life. He married and fathered two healthy children who gave him four grandchildren and two great grandchildren. He had a long career in Japan’s postal and telegraph services. As a leader in Japan’s anti-nuclear movement, he addressed thousands of audiences and hundreds of thousands of people. Many of the more than 250,000 who lived in Nagasaki on August 9, 1945 were not so lucky.
