    On August 6, 1945, an American B-29 bomber named the Enola Gay, dropped on Hiroshima, a powerful atomic bomb. In an instant, 80,000 to 140,000 people were killed and 100,000 more were seriously injured. Every year there is in Como, a public event to commemorate what happened. The event is held near the Monument to the Resistance at the lakeside gardens.
