At 11:02am on August 9th 1945 a US B-29 bomber dropped a plutonium bomb on Nagasaki, killing about 74 thousand people.  It was the second time in history that a nuclear bomb had been used, so the story of Nagasaki is often overlooked. Journalist and author Susan Southard tells the story of five survivors, who were teenagers when the bomb named Fat Man was detonated on their city. They suffered not only horrifying injuries, but  shame and bullying. The book is called Nagasaki: Life After Nuclear War.
