After the historian Sean Malloy found chilling photographs of Hiroshima bombing victims in the archives of the Hoover Institution of Stanford University, he vowed to resolve the mysterious origins of the film roll, which was found in a Japanese cave.
Instead, the new mystery is how academic researchers were duped into believing that grim photographs of the scattered remains of victims of a 1923 earthquake disaster outside Tokyo were scenes of the devastation from the first atomic bomb.
On Tuesday, the French daily Le Monde posted a lengthy correction after publishing two grainy black and white photographs Saturday of a pyramid of cadavers that it billed as: “Hiroshima: What the world never saw.”
The newspaper said the photographs, which were also newly published in the United States and Italy, were “probably not authentic.
