Hoy se cumplen sesenta y cinco años del día en que Estados Unidos lanzó la bomba apodada "Little Boy" sobre la ciudad japonesa de Hiroshima. Se estima que 140.000 personas murieron de inmediato o sucumbieron ante las quemaduras y enfermedades provocadas por la radiación poco después de la explosión. Este año, Japón conmemoró este aniversario sombrío con la presencia por primera vez de un representante del gobierno de EE.UU. Hablamos con Robert Jay Lifton, destacado psiquiatra y escritor estadounidense y un persistente opositor a las armas nucleares.
