New Photos Reveal Horror Of Hiroshima (GRAPHIC IMAGES)

Sean Malloy, a professor at the University of California Merced, “recently unearthed 10 previously-unpublished photographs illustrating the aftermath on the Hiroshima bombing.”

These photographs,
taken by an unknown Japanese photographer, were found in 1945 among
rolls of undeveloped film in a cave outside Hiroshima by U.S.
serviceman Robert L. Capp, who was attached to the occupation forces.
Unlike most photos of the Hiroshima bombing, these dramatically convey
the human as well as material destruction unleashed by the atomic bomb.

Below, you’ll find one of the photos from this collection. See the rest here. Warning: some of the images are graphic and will be difficult for some readers to view. (Via Danger Room)
