Caption: A-bombed trees of Hiroshima. The three trees with yellow plaques are among more than 70 trees that survived the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Japan. This bombing took place on 6 August 1945, towards the end of World War II, when US forces dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima. The intense heat and shockwave from the atomic explosion killed over 70-80,000 people instantly, and left many more injured and dying. Most of the trees in the city were incinerated by the blast, but some survived, though many with deep scarring, and are now marked by these plaques.
