Video: Never Again (a tribute to Hiroshima and Nagasaki)


During the final stage of World War Two, the United States dropped nuclear weapons on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 and 9, 1945, respectively. The United States did this action with the consent of the United Kingdom as outlined in the Quebec Agreement. The two bombings, which killed at least 129,000 people, remain the only use of nuclear weapons for warfare in history.

Never Again is a montage of images of the aftermath of the 1945 atomic explosions over Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

    Thank you for sharing these photos. Our current president should be forced to look at these. His big mouth is frightening.

    “It’s so dangerous it’s safe.” That what Harry Truman said about the possibility of nuclear war. Harry Truman never met Donald Trump.
