Remember Nagasaki. 9th August 1945

Only one country has ever used nuclear weapons against the civilian population of another country. 



A mushroom cloud from an atomic bomb rises over Nagasaki.


At least 70,000 died in the Nagasaki attack, which came three days after another bomb was dropped on Hiroshima.
Nagasaki was only chosen because the original target, Kokura, was obscured by a cloud.
