BROOKLYN - State Assemblyman Steven Cymbrowitz is holding an annual contest that aims to remember the Holocaust through art, essays, poetry and music.

Students received recognition for their artistic entries during a ceremony at Kingsborough College Sunday morning. Students say that by creating art related to the Holocaust, they gain a deeper understanding of how hate and intolerance can destroy societies.

Students say the contest helped them honor the 6 million Jews who died for being who they were.

Holocaust survivor Zipora Yakuboff told the ceremony's crowd her story of escaping a concentration camp.
