HIROSHIMA A-BOMB MEMORIAL by Michael Trezzi The O-dome is still standing in Hiroshima, and they built the Peace Park around it. Visiting this park was one of the most profound and heartbreaking experiences of my life.

The Hiroshima Peace Memorial is a haunting tribute to the lives lost when the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945. Set in a park, the memorial features Genbaku Dome, the only building left standing in the vicinity after the bomb dropped. This harsh reminder of a world at war reminds visitors of the importance of human life and honors the victims so they will never be forgotten.
