Americans Killed by Atomic Bomb to be Honored in Hiroshima
When the B-29 bomber Enola Gay dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, it not only killed 70,000 Japanese, but also a dozen captured American fliers. The names of the 12 airmen, who were imprisoned at the Chugoku Military Police Headquarters, located about 1,300 feet (400 meters) from the epicenter of the blast that wiped out the city, may soon be added to a memorial dedicated to the victims of Hiroshima.
