Memoirs of VJ Day - A TEFL Global Resource

TEFL Global Resources - Memoirs of Hiroshima and Nagasaki ........and Victory in Japan...............

Hiroshima Castle as it looks in present times. Today is VJ Day according to http://www.historic-uk.com/HistoryUK/HistoryofBritain/VJ-Day/.  I have compiled a TEFL Global reading comprehension resource which you can find on the TEFL Communicative Resources Page.  

Victory in Japan came at a huge cost to human life. Read and listen to the accounts from survivors of the bombings at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The bombings occurred a month earlier after the Allies had delivered their first ultimatum. 

Listen to the voices of the Japanese people who paid for the war. These are the words that should and need to be heard: http://www.globalpeace.go.jp/en/sound/index.html
