Hiroe loves writing poems and watercolor painting. *Atomic bomb microcephaly is a post-exposure disorder caused by A-bomb radiation received in the womb. As the name "microcephaly" implies, most cases are characterized by a small head, with brain and body damage. Many of them being very weak, it was said that they cannot live long enough to reach the age of 20. In-utero atomic bomb survivors are often mistakenly thought to be second-generation survivors because they were born after the bombings. However, they are actually the youngest direct survivors of the atomic bombing.
