At the time of the Hiroshima bombing, Sadako-san was only 2 years of age. She appeared to be fine, but 10 years later she feel ill due to radiation poisoning. Her friends told her to fold 1000 paper cranes (as the crane is a symbol of long life) and her wish to get better would be granted. Sadako-san sadly passed away before she could make 1000 cranes, so her friends finished them for her. May Sadako Sasaki-san's memory live on inside of us.
