Area 8th graders to see live performance at the Orpheum
Area 8th grade students will attend the Sioux City Community Theatre’s Children’s production of “I Never Saw Another Butterfly” at the Orpheum Theatre on Wednesday, March 2 at 9:30 in the morning.
During World War II, 15,000 Jewish children were sent by the Nazi Gestapo to Theresienstadt, a former military camp also known as Terezin. This concentra-tion camp was a stopping place for children and adults on their way to the gas chambers in Auschwitz. When Terezin was liberated in 1945, there were only about 100 surviving children there. These surviving few gathered the writings and artwork created by them, as well as others who had lived at the camp, to put together a published book entitled I Never Saw Another Butterfly.
