…One million is a hard number to comprehend?

Pennies

In an effort to aid people in understanding what one million actually looks like, the Jewish Community Center has gathered up 1,000,000 pennies and is displaying them inside of a clear Lucite case about the size of a refrigerator. The $10,000 weighs in at over 6000 pounds, but the real importance of the project is the scale of the devastation caused by the holocaust. Over six million Jewish people were killed, a number that is hard for many to comprehend. This project serves as a stunning visual display of the true devastation caused during a horrible period in history.
