Making Contact - Lessons of Nagasaki

The US dropped the world’s first atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan on August
6, 1945. Three days later, the small fishing village of Nagasaki also fell
victim. On this edition, we hear the voices and lessons of the most deadly
attacks the world had ever seen.  We commemorate the anniversary of the
bombings with excerpts from two documentaries, “Hiroshima Countdown” and
“Nagasaki Journey.”


Featuring:

*Paul Tibbets, Jr.*, Brigadier General of the US Air Force; *Henry Stimson*,
former Secretary of War; *Charles Sweeney*, Major General of the US Air
Force; *Sumiteru Taniguchi*, Nagasaki bomb survivor; *Victor Tolley*, US
Marine Corp. vet; *Itsuko Okubo*, Nagasaki bomb survivor.
