The Bombing of Hiroshima

1)This picture is a picture of a cherry tree in the Chou Park 800 meters away the hypo center and to me looks very peaceful. The tree is losing its leaves and in the back you can see all of the houses and all of the buildings that people work at. It also looks windy. This picture was taken before the bombing all started.

2) This is a picture of a wooden bridge after the bombing and all that's left are the shadows imprinted on the floor of the parapets that hold the bridge together. In the picture instead of the shadows being darker they are lighter than the floor. This bridge is 2,890 feet (880 meters) south-south-west of the hypo center. The shadows give a clue as to the exact location of the hypo center.

3) Here is a survivor from the Hiroshima bombing. Hibakusha is the term widely used in Japan referring to victims of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. When I look at this picture it makes me feel very sad knowing that innocent people had to go through this and even babies. If the people didn't die they survived and ended up getting scared or very hurt some people probably lost body parts.

4) This picture was drawn by a surviver from the bombing of Hiroshima. This is a picture of people who are suffering from getting hit by the bomb. There is woman on the ground asking for help from the woman that is walking away. In the background there are people on the floor slowly dieing that need medical treatment really bad.
