A Tragic Anniversary

A-Bomb Dome, Hiroshima

67 years ago, on August 6 and 9, 1945 two atomic bombs were dropped on two Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

 

The nuclear attack caused instant death of approximately 150000 people and many thousands perished afterwards as a result of wounds and radioactive exposure.

The bombing occurred at the moment when the outcome of World War II was evident to everyone. This attack became atrocious act of intimidation.

Today the world recalls of this tragedy as of nightmare and we can only hope that the nuclear weapons will never be used again.
