Participants in the Butterfly Project will learn about children who died in the Holocaust and receive a card with the story of a specific child. The participants will then paint a butterfly, perhaps inspired by the story of that child. As they learn about children lost in the Holocaust, we will challenge the community to embrace difference and to fight against bigotry and intolerance happening now. We will also offer support to children and families in underserved areas of the city. The completed butterflies will be displayed in participating libraries as part of a city-wide exhibit, and there will also be a free end-of-summer celebration to bring together all participants in the project. There is no cost to participate in this program.
