About Sadako Sasaki
Diagnosed with leukemia due to radiation exposure from the atomic bomb, Sadako Sasaki began folding paper cranes in her hospital bed. According to Japanese legend, a person who folds 1,000 paper cranes will be granted one wish. Sadako, after folding more than 1,000 cranes, wished for world peace and reconciliation. The Sadako Legacy Foundation of Japan donated one of Sadako's cranes to World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument; the crane is now part of a new exhibit at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center.
