Sometimes, extreme measures are required to put an end to terrible conflicts.

Still, I find it heartbreaking and disturbing to picture a whole city being wiped out in order to pay for the atrocities committed by power-hungry leaders.

What you see below is a 360-degree panoramic view of Hiroshima in Japan, after the atomic bomb “Little Boy” was dropped in August 1945. The images were captured by one Japanese and 3 American photographers at Ground Zero, and the panorama was created by 360cities founder Jeffrey Martin.

Shigeo Hayashi, the Japanese photographer, described his feelings in Approaching Ground Zero:

On October 1, 1945, I stood at the hypocenter of the Hiroshima atomic bombing and made a slow revolution. In that instant I had a difficulty grasping that this city had been felled by a single explosion. Nothing in my experience had prepared me to conceive of that magnitude of destructive force.
Working as an army engineer for three years, I had dealt with explosive materials on a daily basis, and I thought I knew their power. Standing there, I simply could not accept at an emotional level that a single bomb had done all this.
