Joseph S. Kalina Prize

2017-2018 Holocaust related-themed essay contest

In some sense, we all preserve the memory of the Holocaust. The Jewish Studies Program at Syracuse University is committed to enhancing our knowledge of the Holocaust and the tradition it sought to destroy.

The Joseph S. Kalina Prize is awarded yearly to the best essays on a Holocaust-related theme written by a Syracuse University undergraduate and graduate student. The two prizes carry cash awards of $400 each.

Essays may treat any aspect of the Holocaust and its contemporary implications. Literary, philosophical, historical, sociological, ethical, theological, and psychological themes are appropriate; other multi-disciplinary studies including creative writing projects will also be considered. Entries often originate as course papers.

Undergraduate essays may vary in length from 2-15 pages; graduate essays may vary in length from 10-25 pages. All essays must be submitted before noon on May 9, 2018. Please send electronically to SrAssocDeanCAS@syr.edu

For further information, please contact Zachary Braiterman at zbraiter@syr.edu.
