This year the focus was on children, rescue, resistance, liberation, and refugees. They looked for creativity, thoughtfulness, an understanding of the theme, as well as evidence of students relating their piece to a specific Holocaust testimony, text, or event.
All Lake Washington Girls Middle School sixth grade students entered the contest, and we are proud of each and every one of them for their thoughtful compassion and empathy. Six members of the Class of placed in this year's contest: There was a reason that this word was scarce during the Holocaust.
There just wasn't enough. People in the Holocaust suffered unmentionable horrors, horrors that left many scarred and hopeless, with good reason. For a start, she was brave, courageous, loyal, and confident. She was a Hungarian Jew that parachuted into enemy country during the Holocaust to help Jewish communities.
She wrote in her diary every day for months. Her words were inspiring and really showed life in the holocaust in a beautiful, poetic way. For the contest, I wrote a poem in the shape of this girl.
Surrounding her, there is barbed wire is made up of her quotes. I chose her because her words really changed my perception of the Holocaust: My art piece is of a bird cage with the names of the groups of people who were targeted in the Holocaust leaving the cage.
The bird cage is black to represent the darkness of their world during the Holocaust, and also to represent being locked up and not able to escape.
I chose to do this art piece because it shows the victims growing and keeping hope even after the war.
My art piece is a mix between markers and collage. My art piece represents Kindertransport. The scene in my art piece is of some kids from Kindertransport on a boat going back home. I did silhouettes instead of detailed drawings because a lot of the kids when they came back their attitudes and expressions had changed because during the war they had to grow up fast and be able to take care of themselves and many others.
I wanted to do a symbol for Kindertransport because I am a kid and I wanted to learn more while I was making this art piece. It is through the study of the Holocaust that our students and community learn about human behavior, social responsibility, moral courage, the importance of speaking out against intolerance, and the difference just one person can make.
