Atomic Bomb in Hiroshima



The First atomic bomb of humanity was used in Hiroshima
The nuclear weapons should never be used again


It is the only structure left standing in the area where the first atomic

bomb exploded on August 6 1945.

The Atomic Bomb Dome is the ruin of the former Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall that was destroyed when the first nuclear
weapon, atomic bomb, in human history was dropped by an American
Air Force bomber in 1945.
Because the atomic blast explored almost directly above this spot,
the walls of the building were partially spared from destruction.
The building has been preserved in the same state as is was found immediately after the bombing.
It now serves as a reminder of nuclear devastation and as a symbol of hope
for world peace and the elimination of all nuclear weapons.   
Atomic Bomb Dome, testifying to its tragic history, is also a powerful symbol of Hiroshima’s plea that nuclear weapons should never be used again.
In 1996, the building was listed as a World Heritage Site as both an important 
ruin as a symbol of hope for world peace.
