Antiwar Radio: Anthony Weller

Author and musician Anthony Weller discusses First Into Nagasaki: The Censored Eyewitness Dispatches on Post-Atomic Japan and Its Prisoners of War, the lost articles of his father, Pulitzer Prize winner George Weller, the first American into Nagasaki just a month after the bombing. His stories contained information about the actual effects of nuclear war, “Disease X” – radiation sickness – and the governments unwillingness to provide any type of medical care for its victims. Weller also opened one of the largest of the POW camps, and reported the conditions there.
