In a photo slideshow by The Telegraph, cities ravaged by war are shown as they are today, with some, like Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan, still bearing scars. After the bombing of Hiroshima, 70 years ago today, another bomb, dubbed the Fat Man, was dropped on Nagasaki, Aug. 9, 1945, killing as many as 80,000 people. Six days after the U.S. dropped the second bomb, Japan surrendered, ending World War II.
Now, the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park stands where the first atomic bomb fell, dedicated to the city’s tragic legacy as the first in the world to suffer a nuclear attack. In Nagasaki, the one-legged rubble of a torii — an archway into a sacred shrine— remains at Sannō Shrine to commemorate the day the city was bombed.
