On 06 August 2020 Japan will mark the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima. In 1945 the United States dropped two nuclear bombs over the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on 06 and 09 August respectively, killing more than 200,000 people.

This year’s annual commemoration events were either canceled or scaled down amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
