Looking Back On The 75th Anniversary Of The Hiroshima Atomic Bombing

The city of Hiroshima in western Japan marks the 75th anniversary of the world’s first nuclear attack on August 06, 2020. On August 6, 1945, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima in Japan. Many people exposed to radiation developed symptoms such as vomiting and hair loss. Most of those with severe radiation symptoms died within three to six weeks. Others who lived beyond that developed health problems related to burns and radiation-induced cancers and other illnesses. An estimated 140,000 people, including those with radiation-related injuries and illnesses, died through Dec. 31, 1945. That was 40% of Hiroshima’s population of 350,000 before the attack. Here we take a look at the pictures of that day in Hiroshima.
