A Thousand Paper Cranes


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

This year the school explores a true story—based on the Canadian writer Eleanor Coerr’s 1977 fictionalized re-telling of Sadako, a 12-year-old Japanese girl who develops leukemia because she was exposed to the radiation of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945. The script was also informed by author Takayuki Ishii’s book One Thousand Paper Cranes: The Story of Sadako and the Children’s Peace Statue. The story follows the progression of her illness and shows how she learns to cope with her tragic circumstance with the unwavering support of her family and friends. Sadako’s courage gives rise to a new hope for her and her friends and moves them to a call for peace on earth.

We hope you will join our cry for peace in the world.
