Remarques & avis / Review — An acclaimed testimony of the aftermath of the atomic bombing on Hiroshima, for which Hiromi TSUCHIDA and Ryuichiro FUKIAGE won the Nobuo Ina Award. They searched for the 186 Children of the Atomic Bombing whose experiences were recorded in the 1951 eponymous book (Genbaku no Ko); they found 107, 6 had died, 16 didn't want to participate, 8 didn't want to have their picture taken, and in the end 77 were interviewed. Below the pictures are found excerpts of the testimonies the then-kids made in 1951, adding to the contrast. A very powerful and very touching work.

Un témoignage très remarqué sur les suites du bombardement nucléaire sur Hiroshima, pour lequel TSUCHIDA Hiromi et FUKIAGE Ryuichiro remportèrent le prix Ina Nobuo. Ils se mirent à la recherche des 186 Enfants du bombardement dont les expériences furent consignées dans le livre éponyme (Genbaku no Ko) en 1951 : ils en localisèrent 107, 6 étaient morts, 16 ne souhaitèrent pas participer, 8 n'être pas photographié, et en fin de compte 77 furent interviewés. Sous les photographies l'on trouve des extraits des témoignages faits par les alors-enfants en 1951, qui ajoutent au contraste. Un ouvrage très puissant et très touchant.
