The technology of the atomic bomb had a significant and tragic impact on history during and following World War II. In this lesson students learn about the atomic bomb and about some of the victims of this technology through close observation and discussion of Ben Shahn's From That Day On. Students develop a sense of empathy towards the survivors of atomic bombings and translate their reactions into poems.
