The A-Bomb Dome.
In retrospect, shining all over Hiroshima was like shining all over the Holocaust Denkma
l in Berlin. I did these photos before entering the peace museum, so i actually wasn't so much aware of the magnitude of this event. Walking through the museum was pretty shocking, I wasn't so much shocked from the description of the bomb and its aftermath as I was from the American documents issued prior to the bombing. Basically the Americans wanted to test two new models of bombs and they didn't really give a fuck about who they've dropped it on. Knowing a bit of history, maybe being shocked from this fact is pretty naive.
This whole area near where the bomb dropped is now called Peace Memorial Park.
