What is the Butterfly Project?

The Butterfly Project originated at the San Diego Jewish Academy, in San Diego, California.  It was inspired by the film documentary Paper Clips and a poem, The Butterfly, written by Pavel Friedmann, a young man who died in the Auschwitz concentration camp.

The project is meant to memorialize the 1.5 million Jewish youth who perished during the Holocaust and to help combat anti-Semitism, indifference, and Holocaust denial through educational workshops that personalize the history for each participant. The goal of the project is to create 1.5 million ceramic butterflies, worldwide.

Beginning in 2008, the Levine Jewish Community Center began work on its own Butterfly Project.  For three years, volunteers led more than 60 schools (public and private), civic and religious organizations in the creation and painting of ceramic butterflies, as well as interactive educational workshops about the Holocaust and tolerance in today’s world.  In May, 2011, on Yom Ha’Shoah, the Day of Remembrance, those who had worked so hard for years dedicated the Children’s Holocaust Memorial Sculpture, located in the Margaret & Lou Schwartz Butterfly Garden of Remembrance and Hope in Shalom Park.  The sculpture by Paul Rousso incorporates over 2,700 ceramic butterflies made by the Charlotte community.


 The above video, A Butterfly Project Workshop, was created by and through the generosity of Morry Alter, Glenn Fishkin, and Steve Kahn.
