Los Alamos History Museum Director Judith Stauber Meets With Masahiro Sasaki In Hiroshima

on August 9, 2017 - 10:09am

In the past weeks, many visitors to the Los Alamos History Museum folded origami cranes to be sent to Japan in tribute to a young girl named Sadako, who folded more than 1,000 cranes, hoping to get her wish of recovering from radiation exposure from the bombing of Hiroshima. Sadly, it was a wish that was not granted. Sadako’s brother, Masahiro Sasaki, met with Los Alamos History Museum Director Judith Stauber during her current visit to Hiroshima. Approximately 1,400 paper cranes from Los Alamos were sent to Japan and presented during this visit, a continuation of the Los Alamos/Japan Project. Courtesy photo
