Schools from Essex and Suffolk are invited to attend the Dora Love Prize launch for the 8th year running.

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.

The 2019-20 Dora Love Prize launches in September and we look forward to welcoming schools from all over Essex and Suffolk to campus for a day of talks and workshops designed to give students and teachers ideas about potential projects. Hannah Onslow can provide more information.
