Tacoma, Wash. – Charles Wright Upper Schooler Kaylee Kim ’16 presented her nationally recognized history project on the Roberts Commission at the Washington State Holocaust Education Resource Center’s ninth annual Voices for Humanity luncheon in Seattle on Thursday, Oct. 31.
After placing first in the state, Kim came in fourth in the country in the senior individual exhibit category at the National History Day national competition in Washington, D.C., in June. Currently a sophomore, Kim developed her exhibit on the Roberts Commission and its work to recover and restore artistic and historic artifacts after World War II as a freshman under the guidance of 20th century world history teacher Nick Coddington.
The Washington State Holocaust Education Resource Center promotes humanities education throughout the Pacific Northwest through scholarly study of the Holocaust. The Voices for Humanity luncheon raises funds for the organization, and Kim was able to meet and talk with Holocaust survivors who gathered around her exhibit. She is shown above explaining her project to Holocaust survivor Eva Tannenbaum.
