Moriah College needs 1.5 million buttons to build a Holocaust button memorial sculpture.
The button maze will represent confusion and panic, the walls will be filled with the 1.5 million buttons, one button for every child murdered in the Holocaust. The centre will be lit by a candle surrounded by the words of a Holocaust survivor.
“In a time like the Holocaust its like living in a pitch black room, but every time someone does something for you its like someone coming in and lighting a candle. you need to focus on the light”.
The National Army Museum will be supplying a button container in the “Anne Frank” exhibition. We invite everyone who visits us to bring any spare buttons they have to put in the container. These buttons will be forwarded to Moriah College to help them achieve building this fitting memorial for many children lost in the Holocaust.

Special or Elite forces always conjure up an air of intrigue and mystery combined with an effective ruthlessness that usually results in getting the job done.
The NZSAS ‘In The Pursuit of Excellence’ exhibit now open in the Hassett Gallery at the National Army Museum. This new exhibition unveils some of the secrecy that surrounds the New Zealand Special Air Service and provides insight into what it is like to be part of this specialist team.
For more information about the exhibit or for opening times and admission rates please contact us.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
