One Sunny Day: A Child's Memories of
Foreword by Studs Terkel
One Sunny Day
is Hideko Tamura Snider's vivid account of her memories of the
Hiroshima bomb and its aftermath. In this eloquent and moving
narrative, she explores her struggle to find meaning in the
absurd reality of war and the dawn of the atomic age.
Snider, a survivor of the destruction that befell Hiroshima in
1945, has written a book of beauty, tenderness and love, a
filtration of facts and circumstances in the mind of a
9-year-old Japanese girl."
"In this amazing
autobiography, Hideko Tamura Snider painfully probes the depths
of the abyss called Hiroshima. She has given a human face to an
event that still haunts, still evokes horror."
