Richmond has become home to many Holocaust and contemporary genocide survivors and refugees. The Virginia Holocaust Museum’s mission is to tell those stories, educating and helping to ensure that the words “Never Again” are someday realized.
For the 2023 art contest, show us the stories of local survivors through your artwork and how they have inspired you!
The contest is open to students in grades 6-12!
The deadline for submission is March 32, 2022
This contest is made possible by a generous grant from Marcus and Carole Weinstein.
