The Holocaust Remembrance Project is designed to encourage the study of the Holocaust and related events in our history and serve as a living memorial to the millions of victims of the Holocaust.

The project involves a national college scholarship essay contest and awards college scholarships to the top 10 writers. These winners join a select group of educators and Holocaust survivors for Scholar Week, a week-long, in-depth educational experience to dissect this watershed event in world history, and how it relates to our world today. The 2012 Scholar Week is provided in partnership with Facing History and Ourselves and OneWorld Boston, an affiliate of Cummings Foundation.

Since the Project’s inception in 1995, the Holland & Knight Charitable Foundation has awarded more than $1,000,000 in scholarships. Tens of thousands of high schools students have participated as researchers and writers. Select educators are asked to join Scholar Week and are provided with detailed teaching materials so that they may share the messages of the Holocaust Remembrance Project with a lifetime of students.

2011 Holocaust Remembrance Project participants explore the Holocaust Memorial on Miami Beach.
