The Douglas R. Skopp Creative Competition on the Theme of the Holocaust
The Skopp Prize is given in recognition of excellence in scholarly and artistic creations dealing with ideas and issues surrounding the Holocaust. Students are invited to submit original essays, historical analyses, stories, poems, musical and dance compositions, video productions, theater works and visual arts creations exploring and expressing their own personal relationship to or reflections on the Holocaust. The award ceremony typically is scheduled in conjunction with SUNY Plattsburgh’s annual Holocaust commemoration, Days of Remembrance, held in the Douglas and Evelyne Skopp Holocaust Memorial Gallery in Feinberg Library. Award winners perform or present their original creations during the observance.
