1945: Tadayori Kihara’s Suitcase

Tadayori Kihara's suitcase - Hiroshima 1945

When the first atomic bomb detonated over Hiroshima, Tadayori Kihara was riding his bicycle onto a bridge; this suitcase was mounted behind his seat. The blast threw Kihara off his bicycle and onto the bridge walkway.  Most of the skin peeled off his back and arms from the burns. He lived another 22 years. (source)
