When fifth grader Rose Calvillo started studying the Holocaust in school, she learned about the Holocaust Museum Houston’s Butterfly Project, which is a global project to remember the 1.5 million children murdered in the Holocaust by making handmade butterflies to honor each child. Calvillo decided to bring this project to her school, reports The Forward:

. . . Calvillo has a goal to commemorate the 1.5 million children who died during the Holocaust. She wants to see 1.5 million handmade butterflies decorating the walls of her Elementary School in Dalton, Georgia. . .

“We need to remember everyone who died, but I think it’s really important to remember the children who died,” she told the Suwannee Democrat.
