NAGASAKI, JAPAN: THE ATOMIC BOMB MUSEUM


A Nagasaki citizen’s clock that stopped at exactly the time that the  American bomber “Bockscar” detonated an atomic bomb nicknamed “Fat Man” 500 meters above the city of Nagasaki at 11:02am on August 9, 1945.

Above are remnants from Urakami Cathedral. Everyone celebrating mass died in there that day. Angels, Saints, rosaries, melted rosaries, and a replica of the face of the church.

Replica of the atomic bomb that fell on Nagasaki at 11:02am on August 9, 1945. The creators called it by its code name “Fat Man” because of its design.

Melted coins, melted, decimated glass bottles showing the impact of the nuclear energy.

A Buddhist monk’s robe burnt right through, a man’s shirt disintegrated on his back, a helmet still containing skull fragments, a girl standing over a corpse, and another clock stopping at exactly 11:02am on August 9, 1945.

Takashi Nagai (永井 隆 Nagai Takashi February 3, 1908, Matsue – May 1, 1951, Nagasaki) was a physician specializing in radiology, a convert to Roman Catholicism, and a survivor of the Atomic Bombing of Nagasaki. His subsequent life of prayer and service earned him the affectionate title “Saint of Urakami.” He had suffered from leukemia before the war, but the effects of the atomic bomb exacerbated his poor health. Even though he was also dying, he tended to the people of Nagasaki as long as he could. On his death bed, he continued to write out and issue prayers for the people. He died 6 years after the atomic bomb.

Kind of a slap in the faces of the victims to use that as a sign, Mr. Churchill.
