  • An Educator’s Journey of Spiritual Resistance, Courage and Resilience

    An Educator’s Journey of Spiritual Resistance, Courage and Resilience

    The Holocaust and Jewish Resistance
    Teachers Program

    A presentation by Meryl Menashe, Holocaust Educator

    Thursday, December 7, 2017, at 11 a.m. 

    HMTC
    Welwyn Preserve, 100 Crescent Beach Road
    Glen Cove, NY

    “Nothing. Absolutely nothing remains of my childhood, of my youth, not even the grave of my dead father.” – Vladka Meed, Polin Museum

    The Holocaust devastated Jewish life in Europe. To teach the beauty of that life, spiritual resistance during the Holocaust using personal narratives and ensure that it would not be forgotten, the Holocaust and Jewish Resistance Teachers Program was born. Founded by Vladka Meed, 32 years ago, the program has brought over 1100 educators to Holocaust sites and sent them back to their classrooms armed with tools and strategies to bring Holocaust education to all 50 states. Presentation will include sites we witness including concentration camps, ghettos, memorials, museums and death camp; lessons learned of the unfathomable depths of mankind’s cruelty, and the courage of the human spirit through small, large and heroic acts of resistance.

    During our journey, we observe antisemitism and memorial desecration; rejoice as evidence that the Jewish people triumphed through experiencing Israeli students singing Hatikvah at Treblinka; Shabbat in Lublin and Hebrew prayers chanted at Birkenau and so much more. The roads through towns take us to each place; roads in existence during the Shoah, and still lead us there today.

    Join us on an educators’ photo journey through the Holocaust.
