Fodor's Review

The memorial recounts the stories of known victims of the atomic devastation. In addition to the extensive archives of names, a collection of personal photos lends immediacy to one of the most shocking moments in history. Heartbreaking firsthand accounts and memoirs of survivors are available for viewing.
