Description


Esta es la historia real de Sadako Sasaki, la niña que, por su gran tenecidad, se convirtió en un símbolo de las víctimas de Hiroshima.

Diez años después de que la bomba atómica cayera en Hiroshima, la joven Sadako Sasaki murió de una leucemia provocada por este desastre humanitario.

Sin perder la determinación que la caracterizó durante su vida, Sadako se propuso hacer mil pájaros de origami con la esperanza de que, como cuenta la leyenda, los dioses la sanasen. Sus familiares y amigos la acompañaron en una carrera contra el tiempo que los unió todavía más.

En este libro, Ishii Takayuki cuenta a los jóvenes (y a los no tan jóvenes) la historia real que hay detrás del Monumento a la Paz de los Niños en Hiroshima.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The inspirational story of the Japanese national campaign to build the Children's Peace Statue honoring Sadako and hundreds of other children who died as a result of the bombing of Hiroshima.

Ten years after the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Sadako Sasaki died as a result of atomic bomb disease. Sadako's determination to fold one thousand paper cranes and her courageous struggle with her illness inspired her classmates. After her death, they started a national campaign to build the Children's Peace Statue to remember Sadako and the many other children who were victims of the Hiroshima bombing. On top of the statue is a girl holding a large crane in her outstretched arms. Today in Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, this statue of Sadako is beautifully decorated with thousands of paper cranes given by people throughout the world.
