Caption

Atomic bomb destruction, Nagasaki, Japan. Footage of the ruins of Shirayama School in Nagasaki, Japan, part of the destruction caused by the atomic bomb dropped by a US bomber on 9 August 1945 during World War II. This footage starts by showing two completely collapsed wooden truss workshops, panning to the left to show the main school building. Close-up footage of damage includes a collapsed roof section and a collapsed stairwell. The final part of the clip shows the interior of the school, and damage to the roof. The atomic explosion, equivalent to 21,000 tons of TNT, destroyed an area several kilometres across, killing an estimated 75,000 people. This was the second atomic bomb used in warfare, following the atomic bomb over Hiroshima three days earlier. Over 220,000 people died in both cities, and tens of thousands were injured. Japan surrendered a few days later.
