Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, built at what was once the hypocenter of an atomic blast, is the most visible sign of the city’s renaissance as a force for peace in the 21st century. But it is not the only reminder of the spirit of Hiroshima. Less well-known are the scores of “survivors” dotting the metropolitan landscape. These treasured trees, shrubs, and groves date from before the bombing on August 6th 1945. They were spared from annihilation, and are now carefully tended by the schools, homes, temples, and shrines entrusted by fate with their care. Based on a three-year stay in the city, this pictorial journey into the heart of Hiroshima documents more than 50 sites and 75 trees. In addition to a forward, introduction, postscript and reference section, this condensed Smashwords edition includes translations of essays by the a-bomb survivor Tamiki Hara as meditations on the meaning of peace in difficult times.
