Hiroshima 'This is Your Life'

The documentary 'White Lights/Black Rain' details the destruction of Nagasaki and Hiroshima when US forces dropped The Bomb on them. In this excerpt, one of the survivors, Kiyoshi Tanimoto, is brought on the show 'This is Your Life' and forced to meet the man, Captain Robert A. Lewis, who co-piloted The Enola Gay on that singularly destructive day. Tanimoto, it should be noted, is famous for his work with the Hiroshima Maidens, the group of twenty-five seriously disfigured women who also survived the attack on Hiroshima in 1945.


  1. The navigator from the Enola Gay is actually speaking at Central on Tuesday.

  2. Wow, that's really interesting. Are you going?
