To You~Letters from Hibakusha~アニメーションで伝える『ヒバクシャからの手紙』

On August the 6th, 1945, an Atomic Bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. NHK Hiroshima Broadcasting Corporation sent out an appeal for accounts from Atomic Bomb survivors. 2,200 letters arrived. It is now 73 years since the bomb was dropped and the survivors are growing older and older. In order to communicate their stories to the younger generations, these letters have been used to make animations.

Searching for his first love, this letter is a description of a young boy walking around the city shortly after the bomb was dropped. This is a dramatization of his letter, beginning with heartwarming episodes before the dropping of the bomb.
