BECOME A MEMBER OF THE BUTTERFLY OF MEMORY AND HOPE SOCIETY
In celebration of the Center's 25th Anniversary and the acquisition of our new facility, the Center premiered a commissioned Romero Britto work of art to symbolize Memory and Hope. The event garnered new friends and new opportunities to share the Center's quarter of a century local and global impact.
The poem "The Butterfly," which was written by Pavel Friedmann who was born on January 7, 1921 in Prague, was deported to the Terezin concentration camp on April 26, 1942 and died in Auschwitz on September 29, 1944, haunts our conscience and our soul. "The Butterfly" has become a hallmark of Memory and Hope so that "Never Again" will a child anywhere, anytime, any place write "I never saw another butterfly."
Romero Britto is one of today's most celebrated Pop artists. The optimism and passion that permeates his work is why we commissioned him to create the Butterfly of Memory and Hope. His design and choice of color captures, defines, and crystallizes the meaning and legacy of Pavel's poem "The Butterfly."
