Hiroshima Day

My birthday, August 6, is also know for the day the United States bombed Japan with nuclear weapons over the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 and August 9 in 1945. I was born on the 31st Anniversary of the Day. This year, 2018 will be the 73rd Anniversary, so in just two years, 2020, will be the Diamond Anniversary of the bombing (75 Years).

Hiroshima Day

This bombing occurred during the final stages of World War II (WWII).

It was said about 129,000 people were killed.

Japan announced a surrender on August 15, 1945.  It wasn’t until the signing on September 2, 1945 that the WWII ended.

Today this holiday focuses on anti-war and anti-nuclear discussions and demonstrations, which is held annually on August 6. Some people may call this day Anti-Nuclear Day.
