Origami cranes for Hiroshima and Nagasaki
HUNDREDS of origami cranes have adorned the entrance to Ipswich Library to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the dropping of atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 and 9, 1945.

The Cranes for Peace display features cranes made by residents, particularly children who took part in a series of Cranes for Peace workshops during the school holidays.

The origami crane has become an international symbol of peace through the inspiring story of young Japanese girl Sadako Sasaki who survived the bombing but fell ill with leukaemia years later.

Sadako became determined to fold 1000 cranes in the hopes of recovering good health, happiness and a world of eternal peace.

It is believed that she completed 644 cranes before she died in October 1955 at the age of 12 and her classmates folded the remaining 356 to honour her.

Libraries committee chairman David Pahlke said it had been wonderful to see the community support for the initiative.

“The anniversary of the Japanese bombing is a time for us all to reflect on the importance of peace and the Ipswich Libraries display is designed to remind us of that,” Cr Pahlke said.
