Not The Last Butterfly
The film is a lesson in the healing power of art, and offers us all a new way to find hope in one of history’s great tragedies, the Holocaust. The Butterfly Project is a grass roots arts and education initiative that memorializes the 1.5 million children killed, through global displays of ceramic butterflies… one butterfly painted for each child. The film’s message of tolerance empowers all of us to take action to create a more peaceful world.
