Q. How did Ichimaru help the victims of the atomic explosion?
Ans. On August 10, 1945, a day after the explosion of the atom bomb, Ichimaru was able to reach the medical school building in the Uurakami area of the city. The school building was completely destroyed. There were some students still alive in the ruins of the building.
There were some more survivors who had escaped to the small hill behind the school. They were weak, bloody and dirty. He carried many of his friends on his back down the hill. Then he hitched a cart to his bicycle and took them to their homes. He also contacted the families of other survivors so that they could take them home.
So many people had died that the disposal of the dead bodies was difficult. Richimaru with the help of some other persons gathered the bodies of many friends and burned them in a pile of wood.
