6 Million Pennies Project

Updated: Dec 10, 2018

We have teamed up with Eastern Illinois University (several clubs jumped on board - too many to mention here) and Lake Land College FEA and ECE/FS Club to collect pennies for the C.A.N.D.L.E.S Holocaust Museum in Terre Haute, Indiana. The museum is owned by an amazing Holocaust survivor Eva Kor. She has appreciated the pennies from us, as well as hundreds of students from several states. See the image of the charred pennies that were recovered after an arsonist burned the first C.A.N.D.L.E.S Museum. A field trip to this museum and hearing Eva's message is life changing. I've taken several groups of students of different ages....it's a truly remarkable experience. Link to the museum website provided on this page, as well as the video trailer of Forgiving Dr. Mengele. IMAGINE FORGIVING YOUR WORST ENEMY! Eva Kor's powerful message of forgiveness should be heard by all.
