Nobuko Oshita (then, 13) was a first-year student at First Hiroshima Prefectural Girls High School. She was exposed to the bomb at her building demolition work site in the Dobashi District. She fled to Koi with a classmate and stayed at a private house until evening. She was found at Koi Elementary School by relief corps workers, who returned her to her parents in Otake. She was still alive when she arrived. She told her parents what had happened to her and asked for water. She died late that night. This summer uniform is one she sewed herself.
