Product Description

Twelve-year-old Sadako Sasaki died from the Atomic Bomb Disease ten years after the bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. As she grew ill, she was determined to fold 1,000 paper cranes, for the saying went if you folded them, your wish would come true. Her determination and courageous struggle with her illness marked her family and classmates, and after her death, they started a campaign to build the children's peace statue in memory of her and other child-victims. Even today, her statue is covered with thousands of paper cranes brought and sent by people around the world. 97 pages, softcover.

Publisher's Description

The inspirational story of the Japanese national campaign to build the Children's Peace Statue honoring Sadako and hundreds of other children who died as a result of the bombing of Hiroshima.

Ten years after the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Sadako Sasaki died as a result of atomic bomb disease. Sadako's determination to fold one thousand paper cranes and her courageous struggle with her illness inspired her classmates. After her death, they started a national campaign to build the Children's Peace Statue to remember Sadako and the many other children who were victims of the Hiroshima bombing. On top of the statue is a girl holding a large crane in her outstretched arms. Today in Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, this statue of Sadako is beautifully decorated with thousands of paper cranes given by people throughout the world.
