“As we witness acts of anti-Semitism throughout the world, we are comforted by the thoughtful writing of the students who participate in the essay contest,” said Bob Cohen, director and chief judge at Florida Division of Administrative Hearings, and a Holocaust Essay Contest judge since 2007. “When you add in the participation and encouragement given by so many local educators to the efforts of their students, we can be assured the legacy of those who perished in the Holocaust is in good hands for future generations.”
Joel Persaud also won the Holocaust Reflections Essay contest with Hadassah Wycliffe Chapter and Joseph. Joel Persaud and his family will be attending a special presentation ceremony January 25th. His essay will be published by Hadassah, and be presented at dinner that night.
