Music of the Butterfly

A Story of Hope

Whimsically dressed in a homemade butterfly costume, Renée recalls the beauty of a tiger swallowtail from her idyllic childhood in Hungary and the horrors that followed when her family was sent first to the ghettos and later to Auschwitz during the Holocaust. Renée’s family shares the story, based on real-life events, of how she was able to remain hopeful by playing music and following fluttering wings in her imagination, drawing comfort from the butterfly’s metamorphosis.
