Description Mitsuho Nagamori, the donor's aunt (then, 38), was exposed to the bomb along with her three children. Her relatives spread out and every day searched for the whereabouts of Mitsuho and her children, but in vain. After digging through the burned ruins of her house, her relatives found skeletons of the four in the kitchen area, lying in a circle. This cosmetic bottle was unearthed along with their ashes. It has melted rubble attached to its surface, proof of the intense fires.
