Japan in Ruins
Japan in Ruins: It is the day after the end of World War II. Nine million Japanese are homeless. Three million are dead - 1.3 million of whom were civilians who died in the massive American bombing campaign of which the atomic bomb was only a part. More than 6.5 million Japanese, half of them civilians, are detained in the former occupied territories. There are about 150,000 lost, orphaned or abandoned children living on the streets. More than 2 million Japanese civilians and military are in the hands of the Soviets and most of the soldiers who fought in Malaysia and Burma will not return before the end of 1947.
