HHRC Awards and Scholarship applications for 2019

Awards & Scholarships

The Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine recognizes exemplary individuals through an annual program of awards and scholarships.

What Can I Do? “The Holocaust reminds us, in the most tragic way imaginable, of the consequences of remaining silent and passive. The Arab Spring testifies to the enduring power of questioning: millions of those under repressive dictatorships refused to stay passive, and they changed their lives and an infinite amount of lives after them for the better. The situation in Ukraine serves as an even more current reminder….While the conflict is not yet resolved, the very fact that ordinary citizens can make their voices heard and begin to change things is a testament to the power of the question.” – Eli Cohen, Mount Blue High School, 2014 scholarship winner
