Barefoot Gen: The Day After

This is the second volume of a manga series based on the memories of Hiroshima bombing survivor Keiji Nakazawa. While not exactly enjoyable, it is a powerful story.

Popular for decades in Japan, the series is now being translated into other languages and enjoying a global audience.
