Nagasaki, Atomic Bomb Museum: Remains of a pair of trousers

Abstract

At the moment of the atomic bomb explosion in Nagasaki, Koji Shirabe, a first-year medical student at Nagasaki Medical College, was at the college anatomy laboratory. He was wearing a pair of trousers given to him by his cousin. He was reduced to a skeleton by the fires following the blast and was able to be identified only because of this unburned portion of the trousers, which still carried the name of his cousin, Yamamoto. (Donated by Junko Shirabe)
