Hiroshima: Cremation of the dead.

by Photo by Hajime Miyatake. Courtesy of Asahi Shimbun.

Abstract

Because of the summer heat, it was crucial to cremate the bodies of victims quickly, although it was difficult because of the enormous number of bodies. Temporary cremation sites were set up throughout the city to cremate the bodies that were being brought continuously. In this photo we can see the bodies being piled one upon another with firewood to burn the bodies.
