A-Bomb Dome

A-Bomb Dome

The icon of the A-Bomb's destruction in Peace Park. Virtually the only building that was left standing. For people who remember WWII, it is a moving experience to ponder the immediate and long-term effects of the bomb. Immediately and within 12 months of the explosion, 200,000 people died. The City of Hiroshima has turned what could be a lasting bitter tragedy into the advancement of peace and the abolition of all nuclear weapons.
