Barefoot Gen is the powerful, tragic story of the bombing of Hiroshima seen through the eyes of a young boy - the artist himself - growing up in a peace-loving Japanese family. It is a graphic 'lest we forget' depiction of nuclear devastation and a troubling index of certain kinds of urban ruin even before the bombs fall.
