The 2013 Butterfly Project Calendar Launch Party
October 23, 2012 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Location Deutsch and Deutsch Fine Jewelry, 3747 Westheimer Road at Weslayan
Join Holocaust Museum Houston for the official launch party for the 2013 Butterfly Project calendar. The butterfly - with its story of rebirth and transformation into new life - has become a symbol of freedom from oppression, intolerance and hatred ever since Pavel Friedmann, a young man held captive in the Terezin concentration camp in Czechoslovakia, wrote his poem “The Butterfly.” More than 12,000 children under the age of 15 passed through the Terezin Concentration Camp (also known by its German name of Theresienstadt) between the years 1942 and 1944. Of these, more than 90 percent perished during the Holocaust. To remember all of the 1.5 million children who died in the Holocaust, Holocaust Museum Houston is collecting 1.5 million butterflies prepared from arts and crafts materials for a breath-taking exhibition that all will remember. Admission is free, but advance registration is requested. Visit http://www.hmh.org/RegisterEvent.aspx to RSVP online. For more information, call 713-942-8000, ext. 104 or e-mail
