Educating the Head and the Heart: A Guest Blog by Tannis Deloyola

October 28, 2014 by Tannis Deloyola | Holocaust Art and Writing Contest

This poignant connection between a 9th grade student and a Holocaust survivor came about because of a special learning opportunity which challenges students to connect through art, writing or film with men and women who experienced humanity at its worse, who experienced silence from the world, and who experienced inexplicable loss and suffering. This opportunity goes far beyond a history textbook or even a literary memoir. It exists because people believe that living history and the preservation of memory are important, indeed crucial. It exists because of the Chapman University Holocaust Art and Writing Contest.
