Krystelle’s prize-winning History essay
Krystelle Boulos of Year 12 2018 has won second place in the History Teachers’ Association of NSW History Extension Essay Prize in the “Generation to Generation” category.
This award is co-sponsored by the Sydney Jewish Museum and is open to any History Extension essay related to the study of the Holocaust or genocides more generally. Krystelle’s project was entitled “Developing the photo or the truth?” and examined issues surrounding the use of photography as evidence for the study of the Holocaust and the experiences of victims.
The Extension History Essay Prize is open to essays that:
• Satisfy the requirements of the NSW HSC Extension Project
• Are the product of genuine research
• Represent “interesting and well-written history”
Kystelle will be formally recognised in March next year at the HTA’s History High Achievers’ awards evening, and will also receive a prize of $150.
