MOSCOW, August 6. /TASS/. Muscovites have brought 1,000 origami cranes to the US embassy in downtown Moscow to commemorate victims of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.
Over 100 people gathered at the embassy on Thursday, the 70th anniversary of the tragedy.
The legend of a thousand origami cranes was popularized through the story of Sadako Sasaki, a Japanese girl who was only two years old when a US B-29 plane dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima.
Sadako soon developed leukemia and at the age 12 began folding origami cranes with the goal of making one thousand as, according to a Japanese legend, anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish. She made only 644 cranes before her death in October 1955 and become a leading symbol of the impact of a nuclear war.
