These two throws out a personal decision of the then U.S. President Harry Truman.

It is estimated that the original number of victims who died instantly from dropping the bomb on the spot were 70,000 people in Hiroshima and 40,000 in Nagasaki, most civilians. But the devastating effects ofpiriniki2 nuclear radiation in the next four months increased the number of dead at 90,000 to 166,000 in Hiroshima and 80,000 in Nagasaki. By 1950 the death toll had reached 200,000 victims. Many more died later or suffered significant damage to their health because of radiation.

The dome still exists, just as it was left after the explosion, and is listed by the World Heritage Sites of UNESCO.
