Hiroshima Day - Horrific Short Animations for Japanese Schoolchildren


The first nuclear attack on the civilian city of Hiroshima happened today in 1945.

Here are two horrifying cartoons made for Japanese schoolchildren to explain about what happened during the attack. 

The information says: "An epic historic cartoon produced for school children about the day Hiroshima was bombed as seen from the Japanese perspective. English subtitles for those of you who do not speak Japanese and for those of you with short attention spans this is a very short film."

Generations change while elder s try to give wisdom to their children. Will Prince Naruhito replace the Emperor Monday? Will Japan stay antiwar? Will the world learn from Japanese civilian nuclear suffering?

People don't deserve such a cruelty, don't torture the innocent people and don't destroy their lives, it's fault of the leaders (the emperor who ordered people to fight) which left the civilians no choice but to fight wars...
