Gene Fujita: A Hiroshima Survivor Finds His Way Home

Sarah Waller

Gene Fujita lives by himself in a one–bedroom apartment on Capitol Hill. He's in his mid–80s and has always liked doing things his own way. His independent spirit landed him in trouble when his father moved the family from South Bend back to Japan in the years before World War II. But, it also helped save his life. Gene shares the story of surviving one of the most horrific events of the 20th century — and reflects on what he has learned 67 years later. He spoke with KUOW's Sarah Waller.
