It was a clear day in Hiroshima on 6 August 1945, when the atomic bomb exploded at 8.15am, taking mankind to a new, unimaginable level of horror. Estimates put the death toll at 140,000 and most of the survivors died later from radiation. A city wiped off the face of the earth - with the exception of the prefectural hall, recognisable by its charred, steel dome, left as a testimonial and memorial. Time has passed and Hiroshima's wounds have healed over; today it is a dynamic university, industrial and cultural city.
