Hiroshima photos – never seen before

On August 6th, 1945, Hiroshima was bombed with the first atomic weapon. U.S. serviceman Robert L. Capp, who was attached to the occupation forces, found undevelopped films with many pictures that are available only this year. They are disturbing to say the less (I wanted to use one photo to illustrate this post, then decided against it). But they stand witness to the horror of war in general and atom bombs in particular.
