Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes

This week we have been creating paper for origami cranes and today we'll look into the story of how the crane became a symbol of peace through the story of Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes.

Here's a pretty amazing tribute to Sadako using paper cranes to create an image of Sadako herself and below is a show Japanese anime showing how the story of Sadako is taught in Japan along with the history of the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and the memorial museum.
