3-1-3-1Dress

600 m from the hypocenter Sakai-machi
Donated by Hiroshi Terao

Nobue Terao (then 24) was exposed to the atomic bombing while watching her father’s bedding shop at her home alone. The store’s large window was shattered into pieces, and countless number of glass fragments pierced her whole body. Despite her severe injuries, she managed to make it to her evacuation site in Itsukaichi but died as her physical condition worsened.  

This dress was worn by Nobue at the time of the bombing. The blood stains on it was discolored.

 

Words of Hiroshi, Nobue’s father:

My daughter suffered severe burns on the left side of her body. She had bruises and countless shards of glass. The wounds had stopped bleeding, but she had completely weakened. Despite our desperate care, she died on August 18.
