makes this drawing so upsetting is that at first
glance it appears to be nothing more than a young
girl at play. Kimura Sadako did this
terrifying drawing of a young girl in Hiroshima -
her skin below the waist a mass of severe burn wounds.
The girl's dress is in shreds, her hair literally
stands on end, and her body language speaks not of
play... but of frenzy and panic. Miss Kimura was 45
when she witnessed this gruesome incident in 1945.
