Unfolding History: Paper Cranes & Symbolism in East Asia - Post WWII

April 14, 7 p.m.

Join Nazareth's Nevan Fisher, Ph.D., as he offers both a personal reflection and a historical overview of the symbolism of paper cranes throughout East Asia in the years following World War Two. Often displayed prominently where atrocities and great acts of destruction were committed, the paper crane carries different meanings for people. Some places long strings of carefully folded cranes as a prayer of forgiveness; others lay paper cranes in hopes for peace, and to reclaim spaces desecrated by war and a wanton disregard for human life. In nearly all cases it represents a desire for new beginnings.
