Story of the Piece Crane

Sadako was born in 1943 in Hiroshima, Japan. She was two years old when the atom bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, on 6th August 1945. Following that Sadako seemed to continue growing up well into a happy and healthy girl. In the 6th grade she was one of the fastest runners in her school and her dream was to become a physical education teacher.


On August 6, 1945, the United States used a massive, atomic weapon against Hiroshima, Japan. This atomic bomb, the equivalent of 20,000 tons of TNT, flattened the city, killing tens of thousands of civilians. While Japan was still trying to comprehend this devastation three days later, the United States struck again, this time, on Nagasaki.
