Hiroshima Peace Park and Atom Bomb Museum

Paper cranes folded in memory of Sadako, a young girl from Hiroshima who died from Leukemia after being exposed to radiation from the A-Bomb in 1945 when she was 2. Thousands of these cranes are folded in careful chains and left all around the Peace Memorial Park in Hiroshima, Japan. Especially large concentrations can be found around the children’s peace memorial. 

    What do you think?
