Nagasaki-shi, Nagasaki Prefecture:

The Nagasaki Brunch of the National Interpreting Issues Study Group held a workshop at Nagasaki-shi in western Japan on June 7, which a recorded video of experiences of Deaf survivors of the atomic bombing titled "Let's Talk in Hands" was used (photo).

About 40 branch members attended the workshop for the purpose of learning concern of Deaf survivors of the atomic bombing and the interview report activity of the branch for more than 30 years.

In the video which was produced in 1989, five Deaf survivors describe in sign language about how they met an atom bomb and what they saw the terrible scene, etc.
