The second atomic bomb dropped by the Americans over Japan was nicknamed Fat Man and when it was dropped on August 9, 1945 in Nagasaki, it killed 36,000 people immediately and countless later, who ultimately died as a result of the radioactivity.

Nagasaki was chosen by the Americans because, in addition to its economic importance, the location of the city and its surrounding mountain slopes promised the maximum destructive effect of the dropped atomic bomb.

Today, the Peace Park in Nagasaki commemorates the effects of a hazard that has plagued humanity from the mid-20th century to the present day. Currently, the dictator of Russia, Putin, is threatening to use nuclear weapons against supporters of Ukraine, which is currently being unlawfully attacked by Russian troops.
