Six Million Penny Project

Six Million Penny Project



We tell our children to “Never Forget” the Holocaust. We implore them to contemplate the horror of six million lives, futures and dreams extinguished by hatred, so they will create a better, more humane world.

Bais Menachem’s Six Million Penny Project aims to reflect the enormity of the Six Million. Cent by cent, the community of Denver - with the help of students, business sponsors and those who care - will collect 6,000,000 pennies in time for Holocaust Memorial Day in April of 2007.
