I highly recommend listening to this Radiolab short podcast on the story of Tsutomo Yamaguchi who worked in Hiroshima and lived in Nagasaki in August of 1945.  He survived both blasts and lived to tell about it.  A remarkable fact is that there seems to be no statistically significant increase in birth defects or cancer rates of the children of Japanese atomic bomb survivors.
