BUTTERFLY-RF-SC

“The Last, The Very Last . . . Butterfly” is a Holocaust remembrance piece designed for audiences age 9 to adult. Adapted for the stage and movingly underscored with music, sound and visual media, ” . . . Butterfly” is a collection of poems, narrative and drawings created by children who passed through the Terezin Concentration Camp between 1942 and 1944. The broad range of style and treatment of subject matter in both the poems and drawings illustrates the feelings, hopes and dreams of children growing up in a place with “little food, clothing or comfort, enclosed by barbed wire and Nazi soldiers standing guard.” While the presentation tells just a few of many stories of the Holocaust, it is an ideal introduction to or culmination of, Holocaust study, character development and prejudice reduction.
