"Deaf memory of atom bombing recorded by TV"

August 3, 2016

NHK Nagasaki Broadcasting Company and four private broadcasting groups in Nagasaki held jointly the event titled "Memory of Atom Bombing Record by TV" at the Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum at Nagasaki-shi, Nagasaki Prefecture for a week since August 1.

NHK produced a film titled "Documentary '90 I Didn't Hear The Atom Bomb," which ran after about 150 Deaf persons who were in the city at the time of atomic bombing.

The group of sign language interpreters in Nagasaki conducted the actual condition survey of "the Deaf atomic bombing survivors." It was found the existence of 54 Deaf persons, out of whom it was confirmed seven never got the A-bomb victim proof note. Some of the Deaf victims say that they didn't even know the fact that they were bombed for 45 years, too. The film raises an issue, "Why was it such thing?"
