Hiroshima is known worldwide for its grim testimony of the world’s first atomic destruction on 6 August 1945. The nickname ‘Little Boy’ bears no representation to the devastation it brought, as approximately 140 000 humans lost their lives.

The bomb was believed to detonate directly on top of the A-bomb Dome.
