TABC Seniors Among Siegelbaum Literary and Visual Art Competition Winners

The Holocaust Museum & Center for Tolerance and Education has announced the winners of the Siegelbaum Literary and Visual Arts Competition for the school year 2017-2018. The theme for this school year’s competition was “Resilience: Responses During Tragedy.” The objectives of the competition are to foster an awareness of the Holocaust, to provide students with an opportunity to consider the ways one person can make an impact on the world and to promote dialogue and respect among all people.

This year, the competition was judged in three separate categories—prose, poetry and visual arts. The TABC winners are: Matias Csillag, for HS art, who placed second with his submission: The Miracle of Resilience; Gilad Ginsberg, who placed second for his entry: Rebuild; and Shua Weber, who placed third for his entry: Running Towards Fire, both for HS prose; and Hillel Jacobs, who placed second for his entry: I Promised My Father…I am Not a Liar, and David Haymov, who placed third for his entry: A Child’s Inspiration, both for HS poetry. This year’s awards ceremony will be held on June 14 at the Holocaust Museum & Center for Tolerance and Education on the campus of Rockland Community College at 6:30pm. TABC is extremely proud of all the students who submitted this year, but most especially these five, who placed in the top three of their categories, as the contest had double the number of entries this year as last year.
