Japan A-Bomb The Dome

Japan A-Bomb The Dome

In this July 4, 2015 photo, a stray cat frolic with debris at the Atomic Bomb Dome, as it is known today in Hiroshima, Hiroshima Prefecture, southern Japan. The three-story building was just 160 meters (525 feet) from the epicenter of the blast, yet was the only thing left standing in the area. It was one of the few structures built of brick, stone and steel in what was essentially a wooden city. Most buildings were flattened and burned by the bomb, which turned the seaport into a wasteland and killed an estimated 140,000 people, including those who died from their injuries or radiation exposure though the end of 1945.
