75 years ago US President Harry Truman gave the order to drop an atomic bomb on a city for the first time in history.
Hiroshima was the first of two Japanese cities to be attacked by nuclear weapons that month and some 70,000 people were instantly killed – around 140,000 by the end of that year.
To mark the 75th anniversary Michiko Kodama shares her story of what life was like years after the deadly bomb dropped.
