summary
Summary
  • This story is based on the life of a young girl (Sadako) who was dying of leukemia caused by the use of the atom bomb in World War II. The paper cranes are viewed as a sign of good luck: If a sick person folded 1000 of them, the gods would gran their wish and make them healthy again. Sadako worked hard during her illness and was able to fold 644 cranes before she died. Her classmates folded 356 more so that the cranescould be buried with their friend.
