2013 - Nagasaki, Japan
During the explosion of the first atomic bomb in Hiroshima, Sadako Sasaki was there. She was two years old, and miraculously survived. At 10, she developed leukemia. As she was hospitalized, she decided not to give up, and started folding origami with every piece of paper she could find, even if it meant going to other patients asking for the wrapping paper of gifts given to them. Her roommate told her that whoever could fold 1000 origami cranes would be granted a wish by the Gods. Thus, she relentlessly kept on folding. Unfortunately, she died before she could finish, reaching only 644 cranes. Her classmated folded the rest, and buried the total 1000 with her. Today, kids travel to Hiroshima and Nagasaki with their school with long necklaces of origami cranes, which are deposited at the memorial sites as a way to pay respect to the victims of the tragedy.
