Hiroshima Reenactment using CGI
Powerful... sad... yet it's the best example of why these things should never be used again. I understand that at that time the US was facing at least 100K in casualties had it proceeded with its conventional invasion against Japan. The Japanese made it clear that they would never surrender.
Yet they did surrender once word got back to the government about how terrible the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs had been.
Whoever made this show did a great job in illustrating the lesson we all learned after WWII.
Nuclear weapons were terrible, and hopefully they will never be used again.
