The Atomic Bomb Dome served as the ‘Industrial Promotion Hall’ until the atomic bomb exploded almost directly above it. Everyone inside was killed but the building itself was one of the few left standing anywhere near the epicentre. The decision was made after the war to preserve the shell of the building as a memorial. It was declared a Unesco World Heritage Site in December 1996.
