Amazing story of Fr Schiffer

Many thanks to a correspondent for this story of Fr Hubert Schiffer and seven other Jesuits who were in a house about a kilometre from the centre of the blast at Hiroshima and survived while everyone else within that distance was killed instantly.

See also another account, and a further account.

Fr Schiffer put the survival of the small community down to their devotion to Our Lady of Fatima and their daily Rosary.
