The Peoria Holocaust Memorial Button Project, a
community-based effort coordinated through
the Jewish Federation of Peoria, is a
lasting educational memorial dedicated to the six million Jews and five million
enemies of the state murdered during the Holocaust. The mission of this project
is to teach the lessons and consequences of intolerance, prejudice and hatred.
Thank you to the thousands of you who donated buttons and helped us reach our
goal of 11,000,000 buttons. This was a collaborative project among public and private schools and organizations throughout Peoria and the midwest. The buttons were hand-counted by members of the Peoria community. During the collection phase we received buttons from 49 states, 5 foreign countries (Canada, Singapore, China, Israel and England) and St. Thomas, Virgin Islands. More Button Project Facts
We are still accepting donations that will assist us in maintenance and improvements to the Peoria Holocaust Memorial. Your donations will also provide resource materials, community education and awareness, and an audiovisual display. It is our hope that you will continue to help make a difference and send a tax exempt donation.
By working together we can teach the lessons of the consequences of intolerance, prejudice and hatred. You can help make a CHANGE FOR GOOD.
