Atomic Victim Fears Arms Race

On August 6, 1945, Natsumi Nago was 14 and was outside at a school assembly in Hiroshima. At 8:15 a.m., a B-29 bomber named Enola Gay dropped a 9,700 -pound uranium bomb. In the school courtyard, 1.4 kilometers from the epicenter of the blast, Nago suffered burns on her skull, shoulders, arms, and legs. Of the 50 students in her class, only one third walked out of the courtyard.
