Hiroshima girl's paper crane comes to Pearl Harbor

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) A small paper crane folded by a 12-year-old girl who died of leukemia after the U.S. dropped an atom bomb on her hometown of Hiroshima is going on display in Pearl Harbor, where the 1941 Japanese attack launched the two nations into war.

Sadako Sasaki's family donated the origami crane in hopes Americans and Japanese will overcome the events of the past that still have the potential to divide the two nations.

Starting Saturday, the crane will be part of an exhibit at the visitors' center at Pearl Harbor near the USS Arizona battleship that sank during the Dec. 7 bombing.

The tiny crane about the size of a pinky fingernail will occupy a small corner of one of two exhibit halls operated by the National Park Service.
