The 1000 Paper Crane Project

Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes is a non-fiction children's book written by author Eleanor Coerr, tells the true story of Sadako Sasaki, who lived in Hiroshima at the time of the atomic bombing by the United States.  Diagnosed with leukemia from the radiation, she spent her time folding origami paper cranes in hope of making a thousand of them believing in a Japanese legend that one who created a thousand origami cranes would be cured by the gods.   She wrote "I will write peace on your wings and you will fly all over the world".

A statue of Sadako holding a paper crane stands at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial. 

Birmingham's Space 111  coordinated with local schools to create a total of 10,000 paper cranes.

The elementary art students contributed 1200 origami cranes to the project.  The 10,000 cranes were installed at Railroad Park in celebration of the Peace Project.
