Hiroshima: a pictorial with lots of words » photo-107

This monument is called a cenotaph. I have never heard the word and didn’t bother to look it up. However, the arched structure provides and amazing view of the peace pond, the peace flame and the A-Bomb Dome. The center of the cenotaph contains a registry of every person that died as a of the bombing. To date the registry contains 221,893 names.
