Nagasaki atomic bomb survivors. On 9th August 1945, towards the end of World War II, a US bomber dropped the Fat Man atomic bomb over Nagasaki, Japan. This was the second atomic bomb used in warfare, following the atomic bomb over Hiroshima three days earlier. In Nagasaki, around 75,000 died immediately, from a population of 240,000. Many thousands more were injured or would die in the days and weeks that followed. Japan surrendered a few days after the destruction of Nagasaki. Photographed in August 1945.
