Exhibition Center of the Chamber of Commerce in ruined Hiroshima

Exhibition Center of the Chamber of Commerce

One of the few surviving buildings in Hiroshima after the American atomic explosion on August 6, 1945 is the Hiroshima Chamber of Commerce Exhibition Center.
As a result of the inhuman atomic bombing, the Center was badly damaged, but survived, despite being only 160 meters from the epicenter. The building partially collapsed from the shock wave and burned out from the fire; all people who were in the building at the time of the explosion died. After the war, the “Gambuku Dome” (“The Dome of the Atomic Explosion”, “The Atomic Dome”) was strengthened to avoid further destruction and became the most famous exhibit associated with the atomic explosion.
