The Genbaku Dome is the ruin of the former Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall that was destroyed when the first nuclear weapon in human history was dropped by an American air force bomber on August 6, 1945. Because the atomic blast was almost directly above this spot, the walls of the building were partially spared from destruction, and the characteristic form of the building remained with the iron frame of the dome. Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall was located only around 160 meters from the hypocenter. The building was designed by a Czech architect in 1915 and now is the A-Bomb Dome a symbol of peace.
