Yesterday was the 58th Anniversary of the dropping of the Atomic Bomb on Nagasaki. The largest Catholic Church in Asia at the time was used as the target.

Nagasaki has the less famous but better of the world's two Atomic Bomb museums, both of which I have had the opportunity to visit. It describes in greater detail the context of Japanese militarism leading up to WWII. It also pays homage to the 10,000 Korean victims who died, and describes the discrimination Koreans faced (and face) living in Japan.
