Hiroshima: Peace Memorial Museum, Art by Survivors, 04 -- " Father appearing from under the roof tiles holding my sister".

by Kanachika, Mamoru

Abstract

Father appearing from under the roof tiles holding my sister -- Explanation by Artist: "My father, my younger sister and I were completely buried under our collapsed house. My mother ran half-crazed around the house calling our names but got no answer. I don't know how much time passed, but at one point the roof tiles began to rattle and move. Then father, holding me under one arm and my sister under another, appeared at the surface. He looked like Nio, the guard of heaven. My mother always said that she was never happier before or since." The scene depicted was 1,300 meters from the hypocenter, tenme-cho. Artist was 2 at the time of the bombing, 59 when he drew this picture.
