Can you tell these are #papercranes? Many Asian cultures view cranes as a symbol of peace and longevity. According to popular legends, these cranes also bear the souls of the departed to the heavens.
Mamiko Yamamoto, a docent here at the museum, has been collecting cranes from around the world since 2008. Her goal is to collect a crane for each of the 1.5 million children who perished in the Holocaust. To date, over 670,000 cranes have been donated from around the world!
The project has begun as tiny as one drop of water. However, drops of water make up oceans. Would you like to be a peace maker to change the world?
You can join this Peace Project with any number of paper cranes.
Please send your paper cranes to the address below:

Any size of paper is fine. Also, please write the number of paper cranes you are sending.
