Aug 14 to Aug 20 Rodney Barker AZ Hiroshima Maidens
In 1955, ten years after the end of World War II, a group of American philanthropists put together a humanitarian project unique in world history: they invited 25 young Japanese women, terribly disfigured in the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, to come to America for plastic and reconstructive surgery. This is the never-told-before-story of that project. It goes behind the scenes of how it was put together. It examines the complex reaction on the part of the American military who tried, unsuccessfully, to stop the project. It follows the women personally on their unique journey to the “enemy country”. And it goes on to look at what happened to them when they returned to Japan.
