The Children's Peace Monument in Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park which commemorates

The Children's Peace Monument in Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park which commemorates the children who died as a result of the 1dropping of the first atomic bomb on the city in 1945.The bomb known as "Little Boy" exploded with the force of thirteen kilotons of tnt. At the time of the bombing, Hiroshima was home to 280,000-290,000 civilians as well as 43,000 soldiers. Between 90,000 and 166,000 people are believed to have died from the bomb in the four-month period following the explosion. The Children's Peace Monument was inspired by Sasaki Sadako who was exposed to radiation at the age of two when the city was bombed. A decade later, she was diagnosed with leukemia and died after an eight-month battle with the disease. Based on a traditional Japanese belief, Sadako thought that if she folded 1,000 origami cranes she would recover; she ultimately made more than 1,300, often using the paper wrappings from her medicine. On hearing of her death her shocked elementary school classmates wanted to build a statue for all the children who died as a result of the atomic bombing, and schools across Japan began to raising money. On May 5, 1958 (Children? Day), the statue was completed. Schoolchildren often bring folded cranes with them on trips to the monument today. 1st December 1974
