'The act of hanging a crane starts last century with the story of a young girl, Sadako, who became very ill from the atomic effects of WWII. An ancient Japanese legend promised anyone who folded a thousand origami cranes would be granted one wish. Whilst bedridden in hospital she began to fold cranes for herself and others. Her determination and spirit became famous as she continued to hope for good luck, long life, peace and recovery from her illness.

Each year, children and adults from all over the world travel to the Children's Peace Monument in Japan, to hang their own folded paper cranes as a gift to Sadako's memory and as a symbol for peace.'
