Salt Lake City, UT – When the US dropped atomic bombs on Japan in August of 1945, 210,000 people were vaporized. Of those who survived, some 200,000 are still living today. But they're stigmatized and known as Hibakusha: people exposed to the bomb. The Oscar-winning filmmaker Steven Okazaki has created a powerful documentary. It's the story of the A-bomb - not from the perspective of politicians and historians - but in the words of the people who have lived more than 60 years with its consequences. White Light/Black Rain, Wednesday on RadioWest.
