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.
