The Voice of Hibakusha Credits

These "Voice of Hibakusha" eyewitness accounts of the bombing of Hiroshima are from the program HIROSHIMA WITNESS produced by the Hiroshima Peace Cultural Center and NHK, the public broadcasting company of Japan. The individual accounts were input and translated into english by college students Yumi Kodama, Junko Kato, Junko Kawamoto, Masako Kubota, Chiharu Kimura, and Kumi Komatsu, who were advised by Laurence Wiig.

The translated files were available on the KAMOME BBS in Japan. They were downloaded by Gary S. Trujillo who posted them onto the USENET news system newsgroups alt.activism and soc.culture.japan in 1990. They were been typeset in TeX and printed by Andrew Mossberg ( as a limited edition at the University of Miami. They were later converted to html and placed on the web, where they have spread across numerous Japan-related sites. Some minor editing has been done for spelling and format consistency. Many thanks to each of the people involved at every step of this path, and to the hibakusha who have shared their accounts.
