Day One Hundred Fifty Four

Three Things I Learned:

1. After the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the government blocked off this area of Japan and basically ignored the victims. Also, Americans took victims to hospitals to be examined for medical documentation but did not treat them.

2. Tokyo Rose was a name given to a group of English speaking Japanese radio hosts who were assumed to be war criminals, the  most famous being Iva Toguri, who was the first woman tried for treason.

3. An American program called Hiroshima Maidens took 17 women from Japan who were mutilated from the bombings and gave them plastic surgery to restore their faces.
