Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings are historical events

I do not know why some historical events are more remembered than others.
These are photos of Hiroshima today and this is what matters.
This is the history:
"August, 6 1945 -About 140,0000 of Hiroshima's 300,000 residents died from the bombing, including those who died from radiation-linked illnesses.
Everybody and everything within 500 yards of where the bomb fell was vaporised.
Another atomic bomb dropped three days later over the Japanese city of Nagasaki killed at least 74,000 people by the end of year.
The bombings brought about an abrupt end to the war in Asia - but critics said Japan had already been on the brink of surrender.
Hiroshima and Nagasaki were rebuilt soon after the war and have become important industrial centres."
It is history.
That is it. Have a great Saturday!
