"Why teach Holocaust history?" is a question that several professors at Jacksonville State University have struggled to answer. "Imagining the Holocaust" is one way we are attempting to teach Holocaust history and its importance to our daily lives because by teaching about Holocaust history we can learn about ourselves.
To this end, interested English faculty at JSU developed the idea of "Imagining the Holocaust," a writing contest designed to teach Holocaust history and its continuing influence in today's world to middle school and high school students in the state of Alabama. The competition is open to many kinds of writing, from essays to more creative approaches in poetry and fiction. Entries are due each spring, and prizes to the top three winners in each category, will be awarded.
