A docu-drama under planning seeks to tell the story Dr Takashi Nagai, a survivor of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki, Catholic convert and dedicated peace activist, the Independent Catholic News reports.
This year marks the 66th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki and a film production company is planning to tell the remarkable true story of how one man’s faith helped to rebuild the destroyed city and heal the wounds of a nation defeated and demoralized by war. (Independent Catholic News) Major Oak Entertainment Ltd are raising funds to make a docu-drama telling the remarkable story of Dr Takashi Nagai, a survivor of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki, Catholic convert and dedicated peace activist. His story is a dramatic and inspiring testament to the power of faith in the most extreme of circumstances. Many have petitioned that he be made a saint, and now it seems Dr Nagai may soon be declared 'Blessed'. Takashi Nagai was a Japanese doctor and sceptical man of science whose passion for the pursuit of truth led him to undertake a dramatic conversion to Christianity at a time when Western religious beliefs were especially discouraged in Japan. On 9 of August 1945, he found himself amongst the survivors of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki, where this newfound faith was to be tested in the most extreme of circumstances.
