Students at in Stratford recently created more than 200 butterflies for the Holocaust Museum Butterfly Project.
The goal of this nationwide project is to gather 1.5 million handmade butterflies to memorialize the 1.5 million children who died during the Holocaust.
Art teacher, Beth Rooney, and American History and Language Arts teacher, Marian Rabel, worked in collaboration to bring awareness of the Holocaust to their students. All students, kindergarten through grade eight, participated in designing unique butterflies.
The children's creations will be part of a special exhibition at the Holocaust Museum in Houston in 2012.
