[502] McGovern, Mimura. Hiroshima: Way of Life. U.S. National Archives, 1946.
This film reel shot in 1946 depicts residents of Hiroshima living in the city’s ruins. It is available for unrestricted access and use online at the National Archives website. This resource shows the extent of the damage done to Hiroshima; however, its true value for the online historical resource lies in its depiction of everyday life in Hiroshima. Clips show, for example, farmers tending crops amid the rubble and citizens scouring the ruins for salvageable items, thereby depicting the alteration, adaption, and continuation of everyday life after the bomb.
