Felice Rix-Ueno, textile design Big Flowers, 1903-32. Wiener Werkstätte
Moia Michael was an educator in Georgia when America entered World War I. She knew the boys from her hometown that were leaving for war and wanted to do something. She established the red poppy as a symbol to honor and remember the soldiers. The poppy still remains a symbol today. I would use this story as part of a history lesson and possibly a science lesson as well. I teach the students that when you stand up for something and believe in your dreams anything can come true.
