Holocaust Denial PPT

Dropping of the Atomic Bomb
1. Who wrote this document?
2. What is the purpose
of this document?
3. What date was this
4. Why is the name of
the city left out?
5. Why does the atomic
bomb's power have to be explained?
6. Look at the last paragraph
of the second page of the press release. What were Truman's plans for ending the war? Did he accomplish those goals in dropping
the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Why or why not?
7. On page three, Truman
advocates the use of atomic power for world peace. How does he propose to fulfill this goal?
8. What reasons does
President Truman use to justify dropping the bomb?
with all of the knowledge that President Truman and his advisors had accumulated, how would you have ended the war in the
a table listing the advantages and disadvantages that the atomic bomb presented to modern warfare? Why did the fire bombing
of Tokyo just weeks earlier that killed over 120,000 civilians not receive the same moral criticism that the atomic bomb received?
One newspaper critic stated after dropping the bomb, "Yesterday we clinched victory in the Pacific, but we sowed the whirlwind."
What did he mean by this? Argue for or against this statement.
