The Deadly Consequences of Nuclear War
 

Movies: Hiroshima and Nagasaki after the atomic bomb

The images and film footage in this video were taken by a Japanese filmmaker, Akira Iwasaki, who was jailed by the Japanese government during WW II for his antiwar beliefs. The US government prevented this from being seen until 1970, when it was finally obtained by Erik Barnouw of Columbia University. Barnou produced this video and added the narration.
