Thursday the 6th of August marks 70 years since the first time nuclear weapons were used in war. The target was the Japanese city of Hiroshima. Another city called Nagasaki was hit a few days later. But what led up to this terrible event? And what has the world learnt from it? Here's Amelia with the answers.
This is the very moving story told by the artist, Junko Morimoto, of how she survived the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. It includes her wonderful illustrations and also interactive information about the bombing. A must for all our students to see as we commemorate this tragic event.
