This chapter is a phenomenological reflection regarding the testimony of two women Hibakusas—survivors of the Atomic Bombs (1945)—who candidly shared their childhood memories about the unimaginably outcomes of that massive destruction. The intimate tone and personal structure of this chapter, hence somehow unorthodox to academic guidelines, is the firsthand response of a listening-body (pace JL Nancy) to the indefinable alive imprints given by a surviving other about the immense force of a willful life.
