Here stands a monument that witnessed first and only atomic bombing. Around 600 meters above this building the bomb exploded. The exact location could be made clear from this picture.

The following picture presents the watch that stopped when bomb exploded.

Yes, we also bombed Nagasaki.

Thanks for the pictures, they are very touching.

yes nagasaki was another place where bomb exploded. I consider then as a part of same event. Otherwise technically it was not the first bomb either, because before them, there will be few exploded in controlled enviroment during testing etc. (may be secretly).

Definitely NOT the first bomb....they were the largest bombs ever dropped by one human being on another human being. But they were not the first...the history of man is full of bombs and war.
