Holocaust Essay Winners to Be Honored

March 11, 2000|ELAINE GALE

Winners of an essay contest about the Holocaust will be presented at Chapman University in Orange at 1 p.m. Monday. Two $500 prizes will be awarded for the best of essays submitted by students at some 50 schools around Orange County that participated.

Marilyn Harran, religious studies and history professor at Chapman, organized the contest, in which students were asked to write about a photo of a little girl liberated from Bergen-Belsen, the camp in which Anne Frank died.

"There are fewer and fewer Holocaust survivors," said Harran. "The generation coming along now will have the last opportunity to connect with survivors. The lessons of the Holocaust need to live on and be interpreted correctly for future generations."

Harran is coauthor of "The Holocaust Chronicle," a book to be published next month. Information: www.chapman.edu/holocaust/essay.html
