De Hiroshima à Fukushima by Marc Petitjean Summary

Le 11 mars 2011, soixante-six ans après Hiroshima et Nagasaki, le Japon a connu une terrible catastrophe nucléaire - et immédiatement, comme en 1945, les mécanismes du secret et de la désinformation se sont mis en place. Face au silence complice des politiques et des industriels, une frêle silhouette presque centenaire s'est dressée : le docteur Shuntaro Hida, médecin présent en 1945 à Hiroshima dans les heures qui ont suivi l'explosion atomique. Témoin direct des effets redoutables de l'irradiation externe puis, au cours des années qui ont suivi, médecin des victimes de la contamination interne (les particules radioactives que l'on ingère ou inhale), le Dr Hida s'est battu toute sa vie pour faire reconnaître les ravages de l'atome et les droits des victimes. Le cinéaste Marc Petitjean, qui l'avait déjà suivi en 2005 pour son film Blessures atomiques, est retourné le voir en 2012. À travers son histoire, il nous fait découvrir l'ampleur du mensonge atomique, depuis Hiroshima - les victimes utilisées comme des cobayes, le secret-défense opposé à toute investigation... - jusqu'à Fukushima : les seuils d'alerte manipulés, et les déchets radioactifs disséminés... Ce témoignage puissant nous ouvre les yeux sur la réalité accablante de sept décennies de nucléaire militaire et civil au Japon.

Hiroshima oublié by Béatrice Failles Summary

Le 6 août 1945, les Américains lançaient leur première bombe atomique sur Hiroshima. Trois mois après la reddition allemande, l’opinion publique occidentale applaudissait à l’écrasement du Japon. Il faut attendre le 23 août pour qu’un premier bilan humain souligne l’horreur de ce qui vient de se passer. Cinquante ans plus tard, à la censure ont succédé la gêne puis l’oubli. Des scientifiques, des politiques, des militaires, par vocation ou par nécessité, n’ont eu de cesse, verbalement au moins, de relativiser la tragédie. Pourtant, elle est absolue. Elle signifie que le XXe siècle aura porté au plus haut et au plus fort la destruction froide, massive et mécanisée de l’homme par l’homme. Et ce à deux reprises, au moins. Au moment où la guerre, la vraie, renaît en Occident comme une réalité quotidienne et admise, et où les dangers induits par la prolifération des armes de destruction massive n’ont jamais été aussi réels, nous devons nous souvenir d’Hiroshima. Le livre est composé de témoignages, inédits en France, de Japonais rescapés de l’explosion, de parents de victimes décédées des années plus tard sous l’effet des radiations, de photographies prises dans les premières heures après le bombardement, articles et éditoriaux de la presse française en août 1945.

The Ethical Challenge of Auschwitz and Hiroshima by Darrell J. Fasching,Professor Emeritus of Religious Studies Darrell J Fasching Summary

This book addresses the problem of religion, ethics, and public policy in a global technological civilization. It attempts to do what narrative ethicists have said cannot be done--to construct a cross-cultural ethic of human dignity, human rights, and human liberation which respects the diversity of narrative traditions. It seeks to do this without succumbing to either ethical relativism or ethical absolutism. The author confronts directly the dominant narrative of our technological civilization: the Janus-faced myths of "Apocalypse or Utopia." Through this myth, we view technology ambivalently, as both the object of our dread and the source of our hope. The myth thus renders us ethically impotent: the very strength of our literal utopian euphoria sends us careening toward some literal apocalyptic "final solution." The demonic narrative that dominated Auschwitz ("killing in order to heal") is part of this Janus-faced technological mythos that emerged out of Hiroshima. And it is this mythic narrative which underlies and structures much of public policy in our nuclear age. This book proposes a coalition of members of holy communities and secular groups, organized to prevent any future eruptions of the demonic. Its goal is to construct a bridge not only over the abyss between religions, East and West, but also between religious and secular ethics.

Hiroshima in History by Robert James Maddox Summary

When President Harry Truman authorized the use of atomic weapons against Japan, he did so to end a bloody war that would have been bloodier still had the planned invasion of Japan proved necessary. Revisionists claim that Truman's real interest was a power play with the Soviet Union and that the Japanese would have surrendered even earlier had the retention of their imperial system been assured. Truman wanted the war to continue, they insist, in order to show off America's powerful new weapon. This anthology exposes revisionist fallacies about Truman's motives, the cost of an invasion, and the question of Japan's surrender. Essays by prominent military and diplomatic historians reveal the hollowness of revisionist claims, exposing the degree to which these agenda-driven scholars have manipulated the historical record to support their contentions. They show that, although some Japanese businessmen and minor officials indicated a willingness to negotiate peace, no one in a governmental decision-making capacity even suggested surrender. And although casualty estimates for an invasion vary considerably, the more authoritative approximations point to the very bloodbath that Truman sought to avoid. Volume editor Robert Maddox first examines the writings of revisionist Gar Alperovitz to expose the unscholarly methods Alperovitz employed to support his claims, then distinguished Japanese historian Sadao Asada reveals how difficult it was for his country's peace faction to prevail even after the bombs had been dropped. Other contributors point to continuing Japanese military buildups, analyze the revisionists' low casualty estimates for an invasion, reveal manipulations of the Strategic Bombing Survey of 1946, and show how even the exhibit commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the bombing at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum hewed to the revisionist line. And a close reading of Tsuyoshi Hasegawa's acclaimed Racing the Enemy exposes many grave discrepancies between that recent revisionist text and its sources. The use of atomic bombs against Japan remains one of the most controversial issues in American history. Gathered in a single volume for the first time, these insightful readings take a major step toward settling that controversy by showing how insubstantial Hiroshima revisionism really is--and that sometimes history cannot proceed without decisive action, however regrettable.

Hiroshima by Andrew J. Rotter Summary

The US decision to drop an atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima on 6 August 1945 remains one of the most controversial events of the twentieth century. However, the controversy over the rights and wrongs of dropping the bomb has tended to obscure a number of fundamental and sobering truths about the development of this fearsome weapon. The principle of killing thousands of enemy civilians from the air was already well established by 1945 and had been practised on numerous occasions by both sides during the Second World War. Moreover, the bomb dropped on Hiroshima was conceived and built by an international community of scientists, not just by the Americans. Other nations (including Japan and Germany) were also developing atomic bombs in the first half of the 1940s, albeit hapharzardly. Indeed, it is difficult to imagine any combatant nation foregoing the use of the bomb during the war had it been able to obtain one. The international team of scientists organized by the Americans just got there first. As this fascinating new history shows, the bomb dropped by a US pilot that hot August morning in 1945 was in many ways the world's offspring, in both a technological and a moral sense. And it was the world that would have to face its consequences, strategically, diplomatically, and culturally, in the years ahead.

Hiroshima Traces by Lisa Yoneyama Summary

Remembering Hiroshima, the city obliterated by the world's first nuclear attack, has been a complicated and intensely politicized process, as we learn from Lisa Yoneyama's sensitive investigation of the "dialectics of memory." She explores unconventional texts and dimensions of culture involved in constituting Hiroshima memories—including history textbook controversies, discourses on the city's tourism and urban renewal projects, campaigns to preserve atomic ruins, survivors' testimonial practices, ethnic Koreans' narratives on Japanese colonialism, and the feminized discourse on peace—in order to illuminate the politics of knowledge about the past and present. In the way battles over memories have been expressed as material struggles over the cityscape itself, we see that not all share the dominant remembering of Hiroshima's disaster, with its particular sense of pastness, nostalgia, and modernity. The politics of remembering, in Yoneyama's analysis, is constituted by multiple and contradictory senses of time, space, and positionality, elements that have been profoundly conditioned by late capitalism and intensifying awareness of post-Cold War and postcolonial realities. Hiroshima Traces, besides clarifying the discourse surrounding this unforgotten catastrophe, reflects on questions that accompany any attempts to recover marginalized or silenced experiences. At a time when historical memories around the globe appear simultaneously threatening and in danger of obliteration, Yoneyama asks how acts of remembrance can serve the cause of knowledge without being co-opted and deprived of their unsettling, self-critical qualities.

Imaginal Memory and the Place of Hiroshima by Michael Perlman Summary

Hiroshima claims a crucial yet neglected place in the psychic terrain of our individual and collective memories. Drawing on recent work in depth psychology and Jungian thought, this study explores the ancient art of remembering by envisioning "places" and "images" that are impressed upon the memory. Enthusiastically used by ancient, medieval, and Renaissance explorers of soul and spirit, the art of memory became a profound expression of striving for cultural reform and an end to religious cruelty. Imaginal Memory and the Place of Hiroshima shows that images arising from the place of Hiroshima reveal, with stark exactitude, the psychic situation of our world. Specific images are explored that embody unsuspected psychological values beyond their role as reminders of the concrete horror of nuclear war. The process of remembering these images deepens into a commemoration of the fundamental powers at work in the psyche--powers that are critical to the development of a sustained cultural commitment to peace and to the deepening and revitalizing of contemporary psychological life.

Hiroshima Mon Amour by Marguerite Duras,Alain Resnais Summary

Jacket description/back: One of the most influential works in the history of cinema, Alain Renais's Hiroshima Mon Amour gathered international acclaim upon its release in 1959 and was awarded the International Critics' Prize at the Cannes Film festival and the New York Film Critics' Award.
