I Never Saw Another Butterfly

A Holocaust Memorial Exhibit, “I Never Saw Another Butterfly,” will be on display from Sunday April 17th through Sunday, May 8th at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Greeley, at 929 15th St and 10th Ave. This exhibit is one of many Greeley Holocaust Memorial Observances to be sponsored in several places in town in the next few weeks.

A well-known book of poetry, an anthology of poems written by or about children at the Terezin concentration camp in the Holocaust, is called “I Never Saw Another Butterfly,” edited by Hana Velovkova.

Based on this book, and the terrible facts of the Holocaust, Greeley school children  have created butterflies to remember the lives of children who lived in those harsh times.

Chalice Arts (of UUCG) will feature a collection of posters from several years  of past Holocaust memorial observances, and will also show a number of hand made art and origami butterflies made by Greeley school children to memorialize those who lived or died during the Holocaust.

The public is welcomed to visit the exhibit on First Friday, May 6, 2011 from 5 to 7 pm. People are also invited to visit
the exhibit on Sundays following the service from 12 to 1pm.
The exhibit continues through May 8.
