Virtual Butterfly Workshop


COVID-19 is changing the way people meet up and experience the world. If your family is experiencing cabin fever, you’re not alone. The good news is that there are many virtual events going on around the world. One of those events is happening close to home, courtesy of the Holocaust Museum Houston. The actual museum might be closed, but on Wednesday, April 8, the entire family can tune into Facebook Live for a Virtual Butterfly Workshop.

Event Details:

What: Holocaust Museum Houston’s Virtual Butterfly Workshop

When: Wednesday, April 8, 2020 at 3 pm

Where: Facebook Live


“The Butterfly” was a poem that was written by Pavel Friedmann while in the Terezin Concentration Camp. The poem inspired both staff and supporters to create the Butterfly Project. The hopes were to facilitate a connection between new generations of children to the children that passed during World War II.

During this virtual workshop, staff will guide you and your children through the story of “The Butterfly”.  During the event, as your children learn, they will be encouraged to create their own butterfly creation. It doesn’t matter if your kids are young or getting older, this virtual event is suitable for all age ranges.

Just head to the Holocaust Museum Houston Facebook page and the Facebook Live event will begin at 3 pm on Wednesday!
