広島に落とされた原爆
   


There weren't enough relief stations, rescuers, or medicines.

In an instant, the atomic bomb destroyed the center of Hiroshima City. With the Prefectural Government Building, City Hall, police stations, and all other public facilities wiped out, the city was in complete confusion.
   Starting right after the bombing, however, army units from the south that had only suffered slight damage and other volunteers began efforts to rescue and relieve the bombing victims.
   Hospitals and schools that had escaped the fires were turned into temporary relief stations, and many sufferers came every day for treatment. This continued even after the war ended. However, medical supplies grew even more scarce. Adequate care could not be provided to the victims.
   Dr. Marcel Junod, chief representative to Japan of the Red Cross International Committee, arranged to send medical supplies on a massive scale. His efforts enabled treatment to continue.
