2-2-6-1Thirsty woman catching black rain in her mouth

August 6, 1945 260 m from the hypocenter
Kamiya-cho In front of Hiroshima Branch of Sumitomo Bank
Drawn by Akiko Takakura

After a while, rain started falling.
Black, black rain. Huge drops. 
People craned their faces upward and opened their mouths wide to catch the drops. 
Hot bodies, so very hot, like balls of fire. They wanted water.
