At 8:15 a.m. – the time the bomb dropped, incinerating most of the city – a moment of silence was observed. On Aug. 6, 1945, during World War II, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan. About 140,000 people were killed or died within months when the American B-29 “Enola Gay” bombed Hiroshima on Aug. 6, 1945. Captured: Color Photography from Russia in the Early 1900’s.
