Hiroshima

Come on a journey back in time to World War II when the first atomic bomb was dropped on the city of Hiroshima, Japan. You will find artworks that will represent the what happens in the book Hiroshima by John Hersey. The tone is sad because the men and women that survived see the ruin of their city and all of the people that have died.
