Wedloop naar de bom

By Ben Mullins

August 6, 2018 - August 9, 2018 - 73rd anniversary of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. On August 6, 1945, a single American aircraft dropped an atom bomb on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. Three days later Nagasaki met the same fate. Japan surrendered within a week, ending World War Two. More than 120,000 of the 450,000 people in the two cities were killed, and a further 100,000 died from radiation-related illnesses in the following years.
