Columbia gives 'Gold' to SKA 'Holocaust Journal'


The Columbia Scholastic Press Association presented a Gold Medal to editors of the Stella K. Abraham High School for Girls “Holocaust Journal,” produced by last year’s freshmen.

“The magnitude of this catastrophic event in Jewish history transcends the meaning of words and defies understanding,” read the CSPA commendation.

“The Holocaust Journal that the students at SKA created vividly preserves so many personal stories of relatives who survived and those who did not. “The works recount the resistance which was mounted in so many ways. The verbal and visual works capture the emotions, the legacy, the fight for survival and the indelible memory of the Holocaust. The Journal is a completely unique endeavor and one which makes an impression on every reader.”
