Bringing a Survivor Home


He was less than a mile from the epicenter of the bomb. After watching his classmates die in an inferno that swept over his elementary school, 8 year old Takashi Tanemori was rescued by an Imperial Soldier and brought to one of the nearby rivers, where the horrors and miracle of Hiroshima began to truly take form. Now his journey is to return to the country of Japan, to his city of Hiroshima, for the anniversary of that fateful day. He is bridled with new love from the country that made his home such an unloving place in history, the US, on a journey that is a human treasure generations in the making, and one that continues to inspire people to this day.
