I Never Saw Another Butterfly is a collection of poetry and illustrations by children from Terezin Concentration Camp (1942-1944) during the Holocaust Period. Some Joaquin Elementary G/T students in grades three through five looked at the poetry and chose to illustrate their response to a particular poem. These students put themselves in the mindset that they felt the author of the poem was in at the time of the writing. Not only do the poems allow one to see through the eyes of a child from Terezin but it also allows one to see the maturity beyond the author’s years. Too, it lets the viewer see the understanding and empathy felt by our JES students studying history and art as they look at the haunting reminders of what no child should ever have to see .To be sure, the artworks greatly reflected the poems each child chose. Next, the JES students will learn the fate of the author of their chosen poem. These same students are working on a project to share with all students at JES. Pictured below are works by Abi Hooper, Lauren Garrett, Ebbie McCann, Brooklinn Penning, Hannah Ewing, Heaven Pantoya and Bryer Holloway. Great work students.
