Butterflies of Hope is an exhibition designed to raise awareness of the plight of children trapped in war.  Developed for children 10+ and their families, the exhibition introduces the Holocaust from a Child Survivor's perspective.

The experiences of Sydney-based Child Holocaust Survivors will be highlighted, along with original objects and photographs.  Original children’s drawings and a toy butterfly from the Terezin ghetto have been loaned from the Terezin Memorial Museum for the exhibition.

A photographic exhibition of children caught up in recent genocides will also feature in the exhibition.  Children are invited to inscribe a message of hope for children affected by such atrocities, and place it within the exhibition in support of the right of every child to live in peace.
