It became the first city in history destroyed by nuclear weapons when the United States of America dropped an atomic bomb on it at 8:15am on August 6, 1945, near the end of World War II.[1] Hiroshima gained municipality status on April 1, 1889, and was designated on April 1, 1980, by government ordinance. The city's current mayor is Tadatoshi Akiba.
