Atomic Bomb Memorial Dome in Hiroshima, Japan

The Atomic Bomb Memorial Dome (or Genbaku Dome) is a skeletal domed building in Hiroshima City. It serves as a memorial to the people who were killed in the atomic bombing of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945. Over 70,000 people were killed instantly, and another 70,000 suffered fatal injuries from the radiation.

The dome was registered on UNESCO's World Heritage list in 1996 as a monument that reminds us of the tragedy of the bombing.
