That movie was great. That movie was about war. Over 140,000 people died from the bomb. The suffering the survivors experienced will last forever.
“Each of them counts many small items of chance or volition—a step taken in time, a decision to go indoors, catching one streetcar or the next—that spared him” (Hersey, 2).
A choice or decision
“But a fisherman in his sampan on the Inland Sea near Tsuzu, the man with whom Mr. Tanimoto’s mother-in-law and sister-in-law were living, saw the flash and heard a tremendous explosion…” (Hersey, 6)
A small boat propelled by oars
“The Japanese wartime diet had not sustained him, and he felt the strain of being a foreigner in an increasingly xenophobic Japan; even a German, since the defeat of the Fatherland, was unpopular” (Hersey 11).
To be afraid of that which is foreign or strange “xeno” means “foreign” or “of a stranger” “phobic” means “afraid”
“Satisfied that nothing would happen, he went in and breakfasted with the other Fathers on substitute coffee and ration bread, which, under the circumstances, was especially repugnant to him” (12).
“The hospital was in horrible confusion: heavy partitions and ceilings had fallen on patients, beds had overturned, windows had blown in and cut people, blood was spattered on the walls and floors, instruments were everywhere, many of the patients were running about screaming, many more lay dead” (15)
From the mound, Mr. Tanimoto saw an astonishing panorama. Not just a patch of Koi, as he had expected, but as much of Hiroshima as he could see through the clouded air was giving off a thick, dreadful miasma (18).
Polluted atmosphere than may cause disease
Obviously she could not carry it (her sewing machine) with her, so she unthinkingly plunged her symbol of livelihood into the receptacle which for weeks had been her symbol of safety—a cement tank of water in front of her house, of the type every household had been ordered to construct against a possible fire raid (20).
When Miss Sasaki heard the voices of the people caught along with her in the dilapidation at the tin factory, she began speaking to them” (32).
Wreckage, fallen buildings
“All day, people poured into Asano Park. This private estate was far enough away from the explosion so that its bamboos, pines, laurel, and maples were still alive, and the green place invited refugees…and the estate’s rock gardens, with their quiet pools and arching bridges, very Japanese…[invited victims] because of an irresistible, atavistic urge to hide under leaves” (35).
Primitive; of early man
“Relatives identified most of the first day’s dead in and around the hospital. Beginning on the second day, whenever a patient appeared to be moribund, a piece of paper with his name on it was fastened to his clothing” (63).
About to die
“He had begin to think that this bag, in which he kept his valuables, had a talismanic quality, because of the way he had found it after the explosion, standing handle-side up in the doorway of his room, while the desk under which he had previously hidden it was in splinters all over the floor” (66).
Like a charm to ward off evil
“She earned barely enough for food. At his precarious time, she fell ill” (91).
Left up to chance or to the will of another
“He tried to be as inconspicuous—as Japanese—as he could. He sometimes wore Japanese clothes. Not wanting to seem high- living, he never bought meat in the local market…(114).
