Hiroshima - Soldier Saves Child

Amidst the chaos and debris of bomb-ravaged Hiroshima, a soldier finds a young schoolboy and reunites him with his father.

Decades later, the rescued child is a grown man. He tells his still-emotional story about what it was like to experience the events of August 6, 1945.
