The Holocaust Museum Houston memorializes the 1.5 million children who died in the Holocaust with Taking Flight: The Butterfly Project, an exhibition of handmade butterflies crafted by children across the globe. Over the past 20 years, the museum has collected butterflies for each child lost, culminating in the exhibition and its diverse selection of creations made from materials like paper, feathers, fabric, metal, concrete, wood, and stained glass. Taking Flight runs through July 31, and the museum will exhibit cases of the butterflies at locations throughout Houston until March 2017.
