» Chapman University’s Annual Holocaust Art and Writing Contest

“Everyone is a winner. Students, teachers, parents and our society are all beneficiaries. As are Holocaust survivors. Survivors benefit because their stories are absorbed by young minds who will be witnesses to the future”
William Elperin, President of The 1939 Society.
