The Butterfly Project    
We've Reached Our Goal!

Thank you to all the schools, individuals and organizations who have created and sent in butterflies since 1995 to remember the children who perished during the Holocaust.

The Butterfly Project itself has ended as more than 1.5 million butterflies have been collected. The butterflies will eventually comprise a breath-taking exhibition for all to remember. Exhibition dates will be announced once we have obtained  an appropriate venue.

Holocaust Museum Houston encourages the continuation of teaching this lesson with the idea that schools and organizations can organize their own, local exhibition of butterflies when they wish to do so.

The Butterfly Project

"Children were neither just the mute and traumatized witnesses to this war, nor merely its innocent victims; the war invaded their imaginations and the war raged inside them." 
 — Nicholas Stargardt in "Witnesses of War: Children's Lives Under the Nazis"
