-The Hiroshima of 1945 depicted in these black-and-white images is not some relic of a long lost past. It is a silent reminder of what could happen today or in the future.-(From "The A-bomb")

Two months after the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, a Japanese cameraman captured the devastated city on film.

In 2004 together RCC and Nihon Eiga Shinsya were converting this rare footage into digital foramat as a legacy for future generations. And RCC made special TV-program "The A-bomb What Happened to Hiroshima?"

This work is a digest version from the program focuses on four main aspects of the bombing: heat ray damage, blast damage, radiation damage and rescue efforts. The video has been edited with the intention of stimulating interest among viewers in the effects of atomic weapons and deepening understanding of their human costs.

In addition to the physical damage caused by heat rays and the blast, the video addresses the injuries to noncombatants, including innumerable children, the separation of families, and the ongoing physical and psychological suffering among survivors. The goal of the presentation is to raise awareness of the importance of banning nuclear weapons, and ultimately war itself, throughout the world.
