• Unmasking the Angel of Death

    Dr. David Marwell, historian and former CEO of the Museum of Jewish Heritage-A Living Memorial to the Holocaust, will present a talk based on his new book, Mengele: Unmasking the “Angel of Death.” Signed copies of the book will be available for purchase.

    Dr. Marwell describes the international search for the Nazi doctor in 1985 that ended in a cemetery in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and the dogged forensic investigation that produced overwhelming evidence that Mengele had died―but failed to convince those who, arguably, most wanted him dead. This is the riveting story of science without limits, escape without freedom, and resolution without justice.

  • The New Antisemitism and the BDS Movement

    The New Antisemitism and the BDS Movement

    Wednesday, December 4, 2019

    11:00 AM

    At the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County

    Dr. Linda Burghardt will present a special lecture on the BDS movement.  The international movement for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel – known as BDS – has once again raised old questions about the legitimacy of Zionism and even the right of the State of Israel to exist.  Is this a call for social justice, as its Palestinian leaders claim, or a new form of the virulent anti-Semitism that led to the Holocaust?

    $10 suggested donation.  Light refreshments will be served.  Please RSVP to (516)571-8040 or info@hmtcli.org.
