The Dora Love prize is an annual prize awarded for the best Holocaust awareness project. The prize is named in honour of Dora Rabinowitz Love, a Jewish survivor of Stutthof concentration camp and a 2009 Essex Honorary Graduate. The prize is awarded to the project which expresses best what was most important to Dora: linking the history of the Holocaust with our present day lives, speaking up against hatred, discrimination and developing a sense of personal responsibility.
A group of pupils including Elkie , Lily and Caitlin from Year 9 and Robert and Albie from Year 8 presented their project to the whole of Year 7, 8 and 9 on 22nd January. They also attended Essex University on the 5th February to present their project again to 16 other schools, judges, parents and the university history department. Tabor’s project included various pieces of art, interviews and information on standing together against hatred, discrimination and racism. The exhibition was displayed at the University for viewing, while the pupils presented their project. The evening was an amazing experience for our young people who worked well together to produce a project that educated and encouraged standing up for hate, discrimination and racism.
