Today in history - August 6, 1945

On August 6, 1945, American bomber dropped the world's first deployed atomic bomb over the Japanese city of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. That was during the final stage of the Second World War. The explosion wiped out 90 percent of the city and killed at least 129.000 people. 80.000 people died immediately and a couple of thousands later die of radiation exposure. 

After the Second World War, most of Hirosima would be rebuilt. August 6 became a memorial day for the population of Hirosima and Nagasaki. Each year, thousands of people gather at Peace Memorial Park to join in interfaith religious services commemorating the anniversary of the bombing.
