    In he nearly dies when an operation to remove one of his lungs goes awry; inhis wife dies of breast cancer. He, like other doctors in Hiroshima, is too badly injured to help anybody else. In the years that followed the bombing, Dr. Nakamura saw a flash "whiter than any white she had" seen before. The women soon captured the attention of a Methodist minister named Kiyoshi Tanimoto who had survived the blast himself. The abnormal water droplets, for example, are actually condensed moisture from the dust, heat, and fission fragments already in the upper atmosphere.

    Rodney Barker was nine years old when two Maidens came to live with his host family. She was so traumatized by having to be naked in early adolescence under the eyes of these physicians that she hid the memory from herself for many years. Tanimoto is the only person going into the city. Terufumi Sasaki was haunted for the rest of his life by memories of August 6, For 11 years, he was hardly conscious.

    Inhaunted by his awful experiences there, he quits the hospital and eventually sets up a private clinic in Mukaihara. Summary and Analysis Chapter 5 - The Aftermath Summary In the years from tothe six survivors' lives went in several directions. In the line-up were two of the Hiroshima maidens, their faces hidden behind a screen, and most surprising Captain Robert Lewisthe co-pilot of the plane, the Enola Gaythat dropped the Little Boy bomb on Hiroshima. Nakamura sees not the vast panorama but a small part of the city. When she finds her children unhurt, she irrationally puts pants, blouses, shoes, helmets, and overcoats on them.
