Holocaust Award Deadline Approaches

The Hildebrandt Award, a $500 prize that honors Charles Hildebrandt, professor emeritus in sociology at KSC and founder of the Cohen Center for Holocaust Studies, is given in recognition of excellence in Holocaust Studies. Students and members of the local community are invited to submit essays, historical analyses, stories, poems, musical compositions, dance, film, theatre, and visual art which explore and express their own personal relationship to or reflections on the Holocaust. The deadline for submissions is March 26.

Over the years, the committee has received moving and thought-provoking entries in a variety of media, and we expect this year to continue the tradition of excellence, artistic merit, and critical thinking. This springs Hildebrandt Award will be presented on April 15 in the Alumni Recital Hall of the Redfern Arts Center, during the Cohen Center’s Yom HaShoah remembrance.

The winner will receive $500 and the two runners-up will each receive $150. In addition, there will be $100 prizes for best local high school and public entries. All entries, which may be by individuals or groups, must be submitted by March 26.
