North wall. Children's memorial altar at center. The garland of cranes at the top was contributed specifically for this show, by Mizuho Kakiue, who survived the bombing as a child, though her family did not. Mrs. Kakiue still lives in Hiroshima, and shows no signs of animosity toward America. Other crane garlands were contributed by members of the Milwaukee Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends [the Quakers] who had visited the children's memorial in Hiroshma. Photos to the sides of the altar show the destruction of the city and its people.
