“In Hiroshima, there are permanent shadows caused by the intensity of the blast from the bomb that was dropped. Nuclear bombs emit EM(electromagnetic) radiation which was absorbed by the people or objects that were in front of the radiation. So if they were far enough away from the blast, they wouldn’t have been incinerated, but still would have cast a shadow.

Since thermal radiation is light, and since light travels from a central point, everything in its path is burned except when there is something blocking it, so it creates this shadow effect. The surfaces behind the matter (the objects you see the shadows of) received much less radiation bleaching so there is a visible difference.”

i12bent: On August 3, 1936 Jesse Owens proved all Hitler’s theories of the supremacy of the white race wrong by winning the 100 m sprint at the Berlin Olympics. Over the next week he took home three more gold medals…

i12bent: On Aug. 4, 1936 Jesse Owens won the long jump gold at the Berlin Olympics. He beat German athlete Luz Long (whose sportsmanship stretched so far as to give Owens a good tip after Owens had had two foul jumps) and Japanese athlete Naoto Tajima… This image of Owens giving his flag a military salute and Luz Long heil'ing his Führer has become the iconic image of the ‘Nazi’ Olympics.

i12bent: Upon Jesse Owens return to the US he was given a New York ticker tape parade. However, President Roosevelt never sent him a telegram congratulating him, nor did he invite the athlete to the White House. America being a segregated society Jesse Owens also had to use the freight elevator at the Waldorf-Astoria to get to the reception held in his honour…

from Ordinary Finds - Yousuf Karsh, Yukio Ozaki, 1950

“Yukio Ozaki was a liberal politician who was elected 25 times to the Japanese Diet, serving in that body from its inception in 1890 to 1953. He was Mayor of Tokyo from 1903 to 1912. In 1905 Ozaki sent 3000 cherry trees to Washington, DC., which adorn the city in springtime with cherry blossom. During the 1930s, as an independent politician, he criticised the growing influence of the Japanese military and advocated the vote for women. He was imprisoned during both world wars. Hailed as a political hero after World War II, he was involved in anti-war and pro-democratic activities until his death. The Ozaki Memorial Hall beside the Japanese Diet Building in Tokyo stands in recognition of his contributions to constitutional government.”

i12bent: On August 2, 1939 Albert Einstein wrote a letter to Franklin D. Roosevelt, urging him to begin the Manhattan project to develop a nuclear weapon… The letter was actually mostly written by physicist Leó Szilárd (and two other exiled Hungarian scientists), who together with Fermi had conducted experiments with nuclear fission. Szilárd pursuaded Einstein who was much more famous and well-connected to sign the letter…


i12bent: Frédéric Bartholdi (August 2, 1834 – 1904) was a French sculptor, whose main work was the Statue of Liberty (it was rumored all over France that the face of Lady Lib was modeled after Bartholdi’s mother; and the body after his mistress)…
