Butterfly Memorial Monument

What began as a lesson so children could see how enormous 1.5 million is, Ellie Schiller reached out from the Chabad of Myrtle Beach to the world asking for small paper butterflies to represent each child that died in the Holocaust. The1998 butterfly project, inspired from “I Never Saw Another Butterfly” poem, came full circle on Sunday, May 1, 2016. Hundreds attended the unveiling and dedication of the Butterfly Memorial Monument on Holocaust Remembrance Day near Crabtree Gymnasium in The Market Common section of Myrtle Beach. Schiller’s husband Hugo, an Holocaust survivor, helped his wife with the project. School children from around the world sent in crayon-colored butterflies that were displayed at the Chabad off Oak Street in 1998. The Butterfly Memorial Monument is a permanent structure to honor those who died in the Holocaust.
