Sakai and fellow exchange student Mahoko Kuki shared the art with the class, which was studying the book, Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes. Based on a true story, the book tells the story of a 12-year-old Japanese girl’s quest to fold 1,000 paper cranes — which legend says will make a sick person well — when she contracts leukemia 10 years after the bombing of Hiroshima.
