Origami for Peace
Origami in the Japanese Garden
Every year, the Japanese Garden commemorates the falling of the atom bomb on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945.
According to old Japanese tales, you can get cured from the worst diseases if you fold 1000 paper cranes. After the dropping of the atom bomb on Hiroshima, this story got an extra dimension. A girl who suffered from radiation disease, followed the legend in hopes of curing the disease and creating peace for all child victims. Ever since, cranes, origami and peace wishes have been closely connected to one another.
There will also be taiko performances by Taiko for Peace, and a special performance by Hannah Van den Borne (classical).
