The world changed on August 6, 1945. How this happened is the subject of The Ash Garden. The story unfolds as a discussion of the moral, political, and scientific decisions made by others on our behalf. Dennis Bock looks at the human details surrounding the act of decision-making and its consequences. The Ash Garden tells the story of Emiko, a child victim of the bombing of Hiroshima; Sophie, a child survivor of the Holocaust; and Anton, a German national who joined the effort in the West to develop and use the atom bomb for the purpose of ending the war. These three people are joined together by a shared history, a shared loss, and a shared grief.
