The Holocaust Remembrance Project was designed to encourage the study of the Holocaust and how this watershed event in human history relates to our world today. It has also served as a living memorial to the millions of victims of the Holocaust.
For 18 years, the project involved a national college scholarship essay contest, scholarships for the top writers, and week-long, in-depth educational experience for the top writers, select educators, and genocide survivors. The project also provided teachers with access to detailed materials to help them share the messages of the Holocaust Remembrance Project with a lifetime of students.
In 2013, the project began a new era of partnership with leading museums and other nonprofits in the field to support the world-class educational experiences they offer. For example, it has supported Facing History and Ourselves and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in its 20th Anniversary National Tour and Tribute to Holocaust Survivors and World War II Veterans.
