Read full description of the books Cuadernos de Hiroshima:In the august of 1963, O headed to Hiroshima to cover the ninth world conference against nuclear arms. He was immediately drawn to the testimonies of those forgotten souls of August 6th 1945. The very old condemned to loneliness, disfigured women, and doctors that fought against the toxic effects of radiation. In their everyday heroism and their refusal to succumb to the temptation of suicide, O saw the image of dignity itself. How can we give meaning to a destroyed life? What are we left with after the nuclear catastrophe? A book which deserves its reputation as a humanist treaty with universal reach.
