61 Years Ago



On August 6, Hiroshima marks 61st anniversary of the atomic bombing.

The city of Hiroshima invited government representatives from 140 countries, of which 35 countries sent delegates. But among seven declared nuclear powers -- Britain, China, France, India, Pakistan, Russia and the United States -- as well as North Korea and Iran, only Russia and Iran sent delegates.

Mainichi Daily News gives an account of the anniversary ceremonies.

Nagasaki does the same on August 9. For some photos of Nagasaki from August 9, 1945 can be found here.

Mainichi Daily News has reproduced its August 9th, 1945 issue.
