Censored Nagasaki Report Published

20 Jun 2005

George Weller, an American journalist, visited Nagasaki almost immediately after the bomb blast. His detailed report described the destruction of the city and the awesome power of the bomb that brought so much suffering to its people. He noted:

"Look at the pushed-in façade of the American consulate, three miles from the blast's center, or the face of the Catholic cathedral, one mile in the other direction, torn down like gingerbread, and you can tell that the liberated atom spares nothing in its way."

After 60 years, Mainichi Daily News finally published this report. The report can be found at this link to Mainichi's website. A related story at CNN can be found here.
