Hiroshima: a pictorial with lots of words » photo-104-2

This is the Children’s Peace Monument devoted to the memory of Sadako Sasaki. Sasaki folded 664 paper cranes herself and her friends helped her reach her goal of 1,000. The Peace Museum contains a few of her cranes, and also has the folding paper that was sitting next to her bed, that she had prepared in order to make more cranes. The sight of those little square pieces of paper nearly brought me to tears.
