Abstract

Nagasaki was the second city to experience a nuclear attack at the end of WWII,
seventy years ago. As we approach this anniversary, Paul Warham’s translation of Seirai Yuichi’s novel presents a fascinating window on the world view of the Catholic community, who were concentrated around Ground Zero in Nagasaki, in the locality of Urakami. Narratives such as that of the Christian minority divulge a lesser known history of Nagasaki. Here, we read of atomic memory touched by the themes of guilt, persecution and also resurrection.
