Autumn 2002, it was in the German city of Dresden a natural catastrophe: the water of the river Elbe was extremely high and flooded and destroyed many houses and killed many people. Some houses of local folders were damaged. Myself, I had a paper hats exhibition in a museum (Kunstgewerbemuseum). This city was destroyed from the flooding. In the same Christmas 2002, I proposed to organize a solidarity movement of sending origami stars from folders over the world. A lot of stars from many countries were sent and I hung them in a big origami Christmas tree inside of the museum. On the top of the tree was this star. For this reason I call it Dresden Stern (Star of Dresden).
