Entering the museum, you see these cranes, which circle into the entrance.
13 POWs died, as well as 2000 Korean prisoners.
The bomb was detonated in the middle of the city, rather than near the port or a military base.
While I do understand that the Japanese were being very violent in their own right, the atomic bomb was detonated in the middle of a city, where men, women and children who were not involved in the war were killed. And if they weren't killed, the faced years of recovery from injuries or, as one described it, waiting for the waves of diseases to come, whether in the first year, or years later in the form of various cancers.
It is an incredibly sad story and made me tear up both at the museum and reading it again just now.
