Drawn by Minoru Ozaki

At the time of the bombing, Minoru Ozaki was on his way to school and near the east edge of Minami-ohashi Bridge. After fleeing to the ruins of Hiroshima Technical College, he boarded a rescue bus, where he recognized two students from Southeast Asia. He knew them because his house was near the dormitory where they lived.

 

A bus and a fire engine came to rescue us. I was the only one who got on the bus. I looked up front and saw two international students from the south.
