In 1945, Hiroshima was a city of both industrial and military significance. When the atomic bomb was dropped on the morning of August 6, 1945 at 8:16 a.m., there were 350,000 people living in the city. The bomb caused massive destruction to the city and its people, who seconds before had been going about their daily activities much like you or I, on a particularly clear and sunny Monday morning.
