Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission Awareness - Education - Inspiration

THGC Video Contest

As part of the commemoration of Genocide Awareness and Prevention Month in April 2014, the Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission hosted a video competition open to all Texas students in grades 6-12.  Themed “I Was a Bystander,” the goal of the contest was to encourage students to self-reflect about times when they stayed silent in the face of hurtful behavior and think about what they might do in similar situations in the future.
