Re­mem­ber­ing Na­gasaki and Hiroshima

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The atomic bombing of the Ja­panese cities of Hiroshima and Na­gasaki 72 years ago by Amer­i­can air­planes was marked at the foot of the Acrop­o­lis Hill in Athens yes­ter­day. The gath­er­ing was at­tended by Greek trade union mem­bers and oth­ers. A sim­i­lar com­mem­o­ra­tion was also held in Thes­sa­loniki. The US dropped the nu­clear weapons on Au­gust 6 and 9, 1945, dur­ing the fi­nal stages of World War II. The two bomb­ings, which killed at least 129,000 peo­ple, re­main the only use of nu­clear weapons for war­fare in his­tory.
