Novel Topic: Hiroshima by John Hersey Study questions: 1) Because neither the Japanese, nor anyone else, knew what kind of bomb the United States dropped on Hiroshima on 6 August 1945 (and three days later on Nagasaki), what kinds of explanations did various Japanese sources give of the bombing? What do you think motivated these explanations? 2) In addition to the dropping of the atomic bombs in August 1945 and all the horror that followed what other unexpected event did the Japanese experience at the end of the war? 3) Briefly describe each of the six victims depicted in the novel. How did each react to the events following the bombing? How did each live their lives as hibakusha (explosion-affected persons)?
