Audio Recording of Sadako’s Prayer
Written and illustrated by Fauzia Aziz Minallah, narrated by Marie Tsuruda.
Sadako’s Prayer tells the story of Sadako Sasaki, a school girl who survived the atomic bombing of Hiroshima on August 6th 1945, but contracted leukemia as an effect of the bombing. We hear how she began to make paper cranes after she heard an old Japanese story that says anybody who makes 1000 paper cranes will have her wish granted. Sadly, she succumbed to her illness and died on October 25th 1955. The story of her fight to survive became the inspiration for the design of the Children’s Peace Monument in Hiroshima.
