The goal of the Holocaust Center is to create a community that is free of anti-Semitism, racism, and all other forms of prejudice. This can happen only if future generations have the information and skills they need to overcome that “uncomfortable feeling” they get when they first meet someone who is different or odd.
During the war at least some Jews were saved by people who had the courage to intervene. We hope that their example encourages others to step up and speak out. Whether the issue is bullying, racist jokes, or standing by when others are being cruel, we want students to know how great an impact they can have on their world.
This was the theme of the 2010 Student Creative Arts contest. Winning entries can be viewed here as a PowerPoint file.
