Forgotten hell of people ‘Alligators’ who lost faces after the atomic attacks on Hiroshima.
Forgotten hell of Hiroshima: People could not scream because their mouths were unable to produce sounds.
After dropping the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, the city has become a hell on earth.
Thousands of women, children and men were killed in an instant, while those who survived, suffered from a slow and agonizing deaths from burns and radiation sickness.
People who survived speaking about terrible things like the smell of burned human bodies, wounded people walking the streets with disfigured faces, so-called ‘alligators’. They were once normal people, although they look no human nor animal. They looked like some kinds of creatures that descended from another planet.
Tsutomu Yamaguchi, the man who survived two atomic bombs in Hiroshima and three days later on Nagasaki. The man remembered as the lucky one who died in the 93rd year of life.
But he’s not the only one who survived the atomic explosion. The stories of these survivors have been published in the book ‘The Last Train From Hiroshima’, by Charles Pellegrino.
The book describes people who are called ‘anti-walking alligators “as people who at one point lost their faces, eyes, with their heads transformed into blackened alligator with red holes, referring to their mouth. They could not scream. Their mouths were sealed with pain and their faces destroyed. They made sounds that were worse than screaming.
The man who is also the author of “Ghosts of the Titanic,” mentions in the book catastrophic consequences of atomic explosions in Hiroshima taking forensic detail and survivor testimony.
