(January 7, 1943 – October 25, 1955) There was a Japanese girl who was two years old when an American atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, near her home next to the Misasa Bridge.
Sadako fell short of her goal of folding 1,000 cranes, having folded only 644 before her death, and that her friends folded 356 cranes to completed the 1,000 and buried them all with her.
Sadako had a bad case of leukaemia and that is the reason that she started to make the cranes.There is a legend that if you make 1,000 paper cranes you will be granted a wish and each time Sadako would make one crane she would say 132 I wish to be better, 133 I wish to be better.
This it what would happen if you were to be exposed to an atomic bomb and survived the radiation.
Thank you for reading my review of Sadako Sasaaki. She was a twelve year old girl who changed the world.
