The Butterfly Project is a San Diego-based initiative that has set out to paint one ceramic butterfly for each of the 1.5 million children killed in the Holocaust.
This year, the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh has partnered with the Allegheny County Library Association to further the project's reach throughout the Pittsburgh region and the Sewickley Public Library is honored to be a part of this project.
Participants in the Butterfly Project will learn about children who lost their lives in the Holocaust. Each participant will receive a card with the story of a specific child. They will then paint a butterfly, perhaps inspired by the story of that child, which will be displayed in the library. The hope is that the butterflies will be visible across the city!
This program aims to challenge the community to embrace difference and to fight against bigotry and intolerance happening now.
