He placed a wreath at the cenotaph for victims of the atomic bombings. Obama is the first sitting US president to visit the site where the US dropped an atomic bomb on August 6, 1945, killing an estimated 140,000 people in the final days of the World War Two. Obama was shown the Hiroshima Peace Memorial, nicknamed the A-Bomb Dome, which is the skeletal remains of the former Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall.
