Dora Love, who died in 2011, was a Holocaust survivor who spent much of her life raising awareness that the attitudes which made the Holocaust possible – intolerance, discrimination and outright hatred of those who are regarded as ‘different’ for whatever reason – are still alive and around us. This prize continues her work and is awarded each year for the best project that links learning about the Holocaust with the world we live in today.

This is the 7th year of the Dora Love Prize, and 14 schools have submitted projects. Introduced by Professor Rainer Schulze, who set up the Prize. Also present will be Holocaust survivor Frank Bright. The Dora Love Prize is open to Year 7-10 students at schools in Essex and Suffolk.

Venue: Ivor Crewe Lecture Hall [A], University of Essex Colchester Campus.

Date: Wednesday 30 January 2019, from 5pm.

Part of Holocaust Memorial Week 2019.
