Title

Hiroshima: National Peace Memorial Hall, sign describing continuing radiation related illnesses and deaths since 1945

Subject

Atomic bomb--Hiroshima; Atomic bomb victims

Description

The injuries inflicted by the atomic bomb appeared to be healing by the end of 1945, but a high percentage of those who seemed to be recovering later fell victim to a vast array of aftereffects, including keloid scars, leukemia and other cancers. Since 1946, thousands of people have passed away each year, and the pain and anxiety of many survivors continue.
