The Dora Love Prize is awarded to a School each year for the best project that links learning about the Holocaust, to the world we live in today. 

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 all around us.

This Prize for schools in Essex and Suffolk 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 Dora Love Prize is open to Year 7-10 students.

This will be the 8th year of the Dora Love Prize, and around 20 schools will present their projects, introduced by Professor Rainer Schulze, Emeritus Professor, Department of History, who set up the Prize.
