The Holocaust Remembrance Project is designed to encourage the study of the Holocaust and how this watershed event in human history relates to our world today. It also serves as living memorial to the millions of victims of the Holocaust.

For 18 years, the project has involved a national college scholarship essay contest, scholarships for the top writers, and Scholar Week, a week-long, in-depth educational experience for the writers, select educators, and genocide survivors. Since the Projectís inception in 1995, the Holland & Knight Charitable Foundation has awarded more than $1,000,000 in scholarships, and tens of thousands of high schools students have participated as researchers and writers. Teacher participants have received detailed teaching materials so that they may share the messages of the Holocaust Remembrance Project with a lifetime of students.

Throughout the history of the project, the Holland & Knight Charitable Foundation has partnered with leading museums and other nonprofits to offer world-class educational experiences. The 2013 project will not involve a college scholarship contest and educational program, but will involve a partnership with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2013. The Holland & Knight Charitable Foundation is proud to serve as a sponsor of the museum's 20th Anniversary National Tour and Tribute to Holocaust Survivors and World War II Veterans.
