Georgia Commission on the Holocaust Presents Art Exhibit from Georgia Students

The Marcus Jewish Community Center is exhibiting the artwork of the Holocaust Art and Writing contest on the theme of “What Are the Lessons of the Holocaust?” The exhibit runs through May in the Fine Family Art Gallery.

This year marks the fourteenth year for the contest, held in cooperation with the Georgia Department of Education. The contest encouraged Georgia’s middle and high school students may submit artwork and writing entries about the lessons of the Holocaust.

The Marcus Jewish Community Center is located at 5342 Tilly Mill Road, Dunwoody, GA, 30338.

The Georgia Commission on the Holocaust is administratively attached to the Secretary of State’s Office. The Commission uses the lessons of the Holocaust to raise cultural awareness, promote acceptance of diversity in hope to eradicate hatred and prejudice, and provide quality Holocaust and Diversity Education programs for teachers and students of Georgia’s schools as well as for the general public throughout the State of Georgia.
