At 8:10 a.m. on August 6, 1945, an A-bomb was exploded over Hiroshima. In one second the city was destroyed and 250,000 people were killed or injured.
This is the "Genbaku Doomu", or the Atomic Bomb Dome in Hiroshima. During the visit to the museum, I learned that it was predicted that nothing would grow in Hiroshima for 70 years. But it wasn`t long before grass and buds of flowers and trees began growing from the ashes of the burned city. Like a phoenix, Hiroshima was reborn, but not without a painful reminder of what once happened.
