HIROSHIMA DIARY The Journal of a Japanese Physician, August 6-September 30, 1945

by | Read by Robertson Dean

Biography & Memoir • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1995

With the necessary gravitas, Robertson Dean recounts Hachiya's work during one of the greatest, and most fearsome, moments in human history. Dean's measured tone is full of raw emotion as he describes the strenuous first months following the atomic bomb drop on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, which effectively ended WWII. Dean's able narration expresses both the disappointment of defeat and the misplaced excitement of a retaliation that was rumored but never happened against the U.S. Listeners may find themselves anticipating each day's journal entry in the hope of finding healing and comfort from the suffering experienced by the bomb's survivors. Dean makes clear the author's theme of the common bond among all humanity. T.D. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2015]
