Today marks the 78th anniversary of the Nagasaki bombing. It is known as the Nagasaki Day- a day of remembrance of the atomic bombing in the Japanese city of Nagasaki during World War II
On August 9, 1945 at 11:02 am, USA's B-29 bomber dropped 'Fat Man' an atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Nagasaki and killed 226,000 people
This was after the US had demolished Hiroshima by ‘Little-boy’, a uranium bomb that killed 129,000 people
Hiroshima and Nagasaki were not the first choice to drop the bombs. Initially Kyoto wa spart of the list and finally Nagasaki took its place, as it was also mentioned in the latest Hollywood Film Oppenheimer
The town saw a devastation so intense that led to shadows of people and objects permanently etched into the ground, thta re also known as 'Hiroshima shadows'
The ruined Urakami Cathedral from Nagasaki that stands as an memorial of the devastation
This day serves as a reminder of the devastating impact of nuclear weapons, advocates for peace and nuclear disarmament
