"NOT The Last Butterfly" tells the inspiring tale of The Butterfly Project, a grassroots arts and education initiative that memorializes the 1.5 million children killed in the Holocaust through global displays of ceramic butterflies…one butterfly painted for each child. The Butterfly Project’s messages of hope and healing are woven together with survivors’ courageous stories of these dark times, including a little-known story of the Terezin concentration camp in Czechoslovakia, where a young Ela Weissberger was imprisoned as a child. Now a survivor in her eighties, Ela reveals how she and other children were given the strength to endure the Holocaust by an artist and teacher who helped them express the trauma of their experiences through art. Both a moving account of survival and a lesson in the healing power of art working its magic again, "NOT The Last Butterfly" offers the young and old alike a new way to find hope in one of history’s great tragedies and empowers all of us to take action to create a more peaceful world.
