A quarter of the Jewish victims of the Holocaust were children. In the spirit of active remembrance, a small school in Wellington collected 1.5 million buttons, each a symbol of one unlived life. The buttons were gathered from all parts of New Zealand and from across Europe over a three-year period, and it is now intended to incorporate them into a memorial. This site is to raise money to fund the first phase of the memorial project - commissioning a design and promoting the project to gather the full funds needed to build it. To learn more about the project, and hear why its so important to the children, please watch our video or follow our links.
