Mapping Memories of Hiroshima

It has been over 70 years since the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Hiroshima Archive has been collating the memories of the remaining survivors of the nuclear bombing of Japan, You can access videos of these accounts on this 3d map of Hiroshima.

The Hiroshima Archive uses a Cesium generated 3d globe overlaid with a vintage map of Hiroshima. The map includes playable videos of personal accounts of the Hiroshima nuclear bomb, photographs taken in the immediate aftermath of the bombing and videos exploring some of the monuments to the 1945 bomb built in Hiroshima since the attack.

The map sidebar includes links to similar 3d maps for the Nagasaki Archive and for the 2011 Japanese earthquake.
