RT recalls the Hiroshima bombing of 1945

RT recalls the Hiroshima bombing of 1945
Once concealed from the public, the 1945 bombing of Hiroshima has unveiled another aspect of its after effects – radiation poisoning.

Never before had humanity cumulated research and development with exclusively destructive purposes. A weapon that kills twice – first by explosion, and then by poisoning – was used on Japanese soil.

On the 64th anniversary of the bombings RT offers an in-depth-report on the sufferings of the victims.

Its hero – Doctor Shuntaro Hida, an 89-year-old survivor of the bombing – knows every horrible detail of the event after the decades he spent taking care of other survivors.

Watch the documentary Atomic Wounds on August 5, 6 on RT.
