Ground Zero

 

Disastrous War must not be repeated.

 

The plutonium atomic bomb exploded about 500m over the central monument

at 11:02 a.m. on August 9, 1945. 

The most part of Nagasaki was destroyed, and a tremendous number of lives
were lost.  

And about 70,000 of Nagasaki’s 240,000 residents died instantly, and up to 60,000 were injured.
