Nakahiro-machi Municipal Junior High School
Donated by Akihiro Takahashi

Akihiro Takahashi (then, 14), a second-year student at Municipal Junior High School, was in the schoolyard when the bomb exploded. He suffered burns on the back of his head, his back, both hands and both legs. The burns were so severe that the skin peeled and dangled in tatters. A glass fragment penetrated the root of the nail on his right index finger. Ever after, his finger grew black, deformed nails.
