‘It was a massacre’: Hiroshima survivors in Sacramento recall day of death and trauma August 6, 2020
Supporters of the bombings failed to consider the human and environmental costs, said Dr. Harry Wang, president of the Sacramento Physicians for Social Responsibility. Today, he said, countries with nuclear arsenals are still overlooking the price of warfare.
This ongoing blindness makes it more important than ever for the public to commemorate the memory of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Wang said.
“It’s a mistaken allocation of our resources,” Wang said. “People need to be reminded and educated about what are the environmental and human costs of nuclear war.”
