Photos of Hiroshima from the Robert L. Capp Collection!!! (Soon to be Iran)


faculty.ucmerced.edu

The Robert L. Capp collection at the Hoover Institution Archives contains ten never-before-published photographs illustrating the immediate aftermath of the Hiroshima bombing. These photographs, taken by an unknown Japanese photographer, were found in 1945 among rolls of undeveloped film in a cave outside Hiroshima by U.S. serviceman Robert L. Capp, who was attached to the occupation forces. Unlike most photos of the Hiroshima bombing, these dramatically convey the human as well as material destruction unleashed by the atomic bomb. Mr. Capp donated them to the Hoover Archives in 1998 with the provision that they not be reproduced until 2008. Three of these photographs are reproduced in Atomic Tragedy with the permission of the Capp family. Now that the restriction is no longer in force, the entire set is available below. Please contact Sean L. Malloy (smalloy@ucmerced.edu) if you have any information that might help identify the original photographer.

This are some great shots. But, I say look at some Pearl Harbor photos. Thousands of Americans were killed in this attack on our country. This was justified, sorry to say.

I'm suprised you said that!?

I think the Japanese were suprised too, I think they went by the no civillian deaths rule. In war only soldiers should die.

They should never have done this!!
