A true story about grief, hope and the dark side of nuclear power.

Beautifully retold and illustrated by Judith Loske

Even today, children from all over the world fold paper cranes as a sign of peace and hope and send them to Hiroshima and recently to Fukushima.

This is the story of a girl from Hiroshima.
