Hiroshima memorabilia to be auctioned

A collection of memorabilia from Hiroshima after the nuclear bomb strike is set to hit the auction block.

Now a roof tile from the Sairenji Temple, which was handed to a British tourist by the chief priest, is to go under the hammer along with other macabre items next month in Lincolnshire.

Other lots include a signed picture of a crippled man with an injured back caused by the huge explosion and a signed parchment from Sairenji Temple’s Rev. S. T. Katsaki.

The lot also features a tourist map and eight postcards showing the devastated city and the Japanese surrender on the USS Missouri in Tokyo bay in September 1945.
