On August 6, 1945 during WW2 an American B-2 bomber dropped the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima. The bombing killed 80,000 people on impact and thousands from radiation. After Japan surrendered unconditionally, life in Hiroshima was left in ruins.

Sadako Sasaki a little girl that was only 2 when the atomic bomb fell was seen as a happy liitle girl who wanted to be a P.E teacher. In the 6th she developed what they thought was Mumps and it turned out to be Lukemia. She was told by an old japaneese legend if she folded 1000 paper cranes she would be granted one wish, she succeded in making the cranes but, sadly still passed away. Her classmates built a monument in her honor.
