Grade 11 Westwood Collegiate student Blake Edwards is this year’s winner of the Minna Rosner Essay Competition, which invites students in Grades 9-12 to submit essays on the subject of the Shoah and/or human rights.
The title of Blake’s essay was “The Importance of Historical Education for the Youth of this Generation: Case Studies include the Warsaw Uprising and Dachau Concentration Camp”.
The competition is in memory of the late Mina Rosner, a Shoah survivor who dedicated many hours to educating people about the Shoah as well as the importance of combating racism and discrimination and upholding human rights.
