What was the fate of the survivors of the dropping of the atomic bomb on Nagasaki and Hiroshima?

The survivors mostly died of 'radiation sickness' radiation burns and the 'fallout'. No one knew then what the bombs would do. 100,000 or so died outright...incinerated...another 400,000 died in the next 3 months despite all efforts. Another 2 million were wounded but survived with scars.

The fate was Japanese surrender. They only have themselves to blame.

Largely, they were ostracized by the other Japanese. Lovely society, eh?

Apparently, most of them became professional jugglers while others tended to gravitate towards less-showbizzy stuff like waitressing, supermarket stocking and tour-guiding. Hope this helped with your mindless anon question, and congrats on hooking "larry1" AND "Needful Sinner". Nice.

What survivors? The "survivors" of the blast died of radiation sickness.
- xyzzyLv 76 months ago
For the most part they have died. After all that was over 75 years ago.

The survivors lived :)
Some even wrote books about their adventures.

Wikipedia can answer this. Use it.

Listen to Scott for the short answer, read some books for detailed information. How curious are you ?

Most of them died of their injuries or succumbed to cancer later in life.
