Children of the Atomic Bomb Statue

In the Peace Park in Hiroshima, Japan is where you'll find the Children's Peace Monument. It's a tribute to all of the children ve died as a result of the atomic bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945. This statue is also a tribute to a girl named Sadako. After the radiation exposure from the bomb, Sadako suffered from leukemia. She fought the disease and died. In the sculpture we can see the spark plugs clock marking the exact time of the fall of the bomb as the playing children figures fly. From the statue hangs a crane. Around the statue are urns with thousands of origami paper cranes to honor the dead children as well as Sadako.
