There was a large display discussing the life of Sadako - a young girl in Hiroshima who developed and died of cancer years after the blast. She believed that folding 1000 paper cranes would get her wish granted and the museum included some of the ones she folded. Because paper was scarce at the time, the cranes are made out of a variety of materials, and some are very small.

i think that it is horible that so many died.sometimes i think about sadakoand remember how she never gave up hope.i always think about her at a track meet.
