The students at Moriah School in Wellington collected 1.5 million buttons, which represented the number of children killed in the Holocaust during the Second World War. This article reports on their reasons for doing this and the methods they used to gather the buttons. The students learnt about the personal impact of the Holocaust and designed a memorial to the children who died.
