Alexander 2 Terrence Alexander Coach Bryant 1 st period 03 November 2010 Mrs. Hatsuyo Nakamura is a tailor’s widow, and she has three children. She comes off as a very caring and loving lady and will do anything to keep her kids healthy. Mrs. Nakamura always does what she supposed to do. She and her children survived the explosion without any physical harm, but later she and her daughter, Myeko, suffer from radiation sickness. I noticed that out of all the main characters she was the only one with her family with her the whole time. She also was the only one that struggles financially as a result of the war. The bomb took her house, but not her family like a lot of the others. So after everything was over, she rented a house near the place her old house was, and she sent her children back to school. Mrs. Nakamura basically tried to get her life back to normal. That was her way to cope with the situation. I believe this is the best way to get over something as bad as the bombing. One thing I like about her is that she doesn’t give up. She doesn’t have hatred for her awful situation. She takes it and makes the best out of it. Mrs. Nakamura eventually gets a job and things start to look good for her. Last time we hear from her she is well off. Farther Wilhelm Kleinsorge was a German Jesuit priest. He is the only non-Japanese major character, and I feel he gives us a different look. He helps a lot of the dying and wounded people after the bomb and the years following. He sees one of the most awful sites in the book.

Alexander 3 Terrence Alexander Coach Bryant 1 st period 03 November 2010 He saw a group of soldiers that were severely burned, mouths were swollen, and their eyes were melted. He also had to lie to them telling them help is on the way. He really doesn’t get injured by the bombing, but later he comes down with radiation sickness, like a lot of the other characters mentioned in the book. After the war, he gets really sick and week, where here he has to stay in and out of hospitals. It gets so bad that they sent him to another Japanese city to get treatment. One thing I found really ironic about him is that, even though he helped so many people, he stills get extremely sick were he has to stay in hospitals for long periods of time, but everything ends well with him. Father Kleinsorge finally gets out the hospital, and becomes a citizen of the city. He also starts a new church, and takes the name of, Father Makoto Takakura. Dr. Terufumi Sasaki is a twenty-five year old surgeon at the Red Cross Hospital in
