BBC's Hiroshima won an Emmy award for its re-enactment of the first use of a nuclear weapon. The difficulty: While CGI can make Orc armies and talking toys seem lifelike, they can also make real events seem like Hollywood fictions. This is gruelling, but when I stand it up against the emotional experience of reading John Hershey's account, this is more a testament to the history of cinema than to the event itself. Still, in whatever form, this is a story that we all need to remember.
