2010 Holocaust Commemoration

By John Published: April 14, 2010

Here is the winner of the Dorothy O. Jackson award in the City of Akron's 2010 Holocaust Commemoration arts and writing contest.
"It Takes But One" -- by Elizabeth Denholm and Allyssa Dziurlaj of Archbishop Hoban High School -- also is the cover of the book (click on the picture) showcasing the other winners in visual arts, writing and multimedia. More than 200 students from Akron and Summit County submitted entries. 

My story in the Beacon Journal  focused on the keynote speaker, Lici Calderon, a Holocaust survivor. Here is a short video I made of the commeration ceremony. The dance at the end is an excerpt from Spirit Unbroken, performed by the Manchester Dance Ensemble.
