Holocaust Survivors

Description

The Butterfly Project was initiated by the Holocaust Museum Houston in 2001 to honor the 1.5 million children who perished in the Holocaust. The project's goal was to collect 1.5 million hand-crafted butterflies, one for each child victim. The program was brought to Kennesaw State University in the fall of 2005 by professors Natasha Lovelace and Charlotte Collins. We encourage all visitors, especially those with children, to create a butterfly and honor those who died in the Holocaust. When the project was completed in June 2008, KSU decided to continue to create art to memorialize those children lost in the Holocaust as well as those who continue to be affected by war and genocide. A selection of the butterflies, created by students and community members, were on display at the museum until December 2019.
