    “The Richie Boys” is the untold story of a group of young men who fled Nazi Germany and returned to Europe as soldiers in US uniforms. They knew the psychology and the language of the enemy better than anyone else. In Camp Richie, Maryland, they were trained in intelligence and psychological warfare. Not always courageous but determined, bright and inventive, they fought their own kind of war. They saved lives. They were victors, not victims.

    Reel Upstanders was established in honor of David Taub (1932-2010), a Holocaust Survivor and respected friend of HMTC.

    There is a suggested donation of $10 to attend. To reserve a seat, RSVP to (516) 571-8040.

  • 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.

    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.

  • On the Road to the Holocaust: Moses Mendelssohn and the Jewish Enlightenment

    The Holocaust Memorial & Tolerance Center
    of Nassau County

    presents

    a lecture-presentation

    by Linda F. Burghardt, Ph.D.
    Scholar-in-Residence at HMTC

    On the Road to the Holocaust:
    Moses Mendelssohn and the Jewish Enlightenment

    Monday, November 20, 2017, at 11 a.m.

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

    When the Jewish Enlightenment or Haskalah movement swept across Europe in the late 18th century, it greatly advanced the lives of Europe’s Jews by catapulting them out of the ghetto and into the modern world through its leader, the educator and philosopher Moses Mendelssohn. But along with this huge success came a powerful backlash that paved the road to the Holocaust with a virulent revival of “the hate that would not die.” How did this happen, and why?

    Dr. Burghardt is a journalist and author from Great Neck, NY. She worked as a freelance reporter for The New York Times for 20 years and is the author of three non-fiction books. Her articles and essays have appeared in newspapers throughout the U.S. and she has lectured to both national and international audiences. She holds a Ph.D. from LIU Post and is the daughter of Holocaust Survivors from Vienna.

  • One Clip at a Time Professional Development Workshop

    One Clip at a Time
    Professional Development Workshop

    Tuesday, July 11, 2017 and Wednesday July 12, 2017
    9:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. 

    Holocaust Memorial & Tolerance Center 
    Welwyn Preserve, 100 Crescent Beach Road
    Glen Cove, NY 

    Registration is FREE for educators 

    Are you ready to change the world? if you are an educator looking to make a difference in your life as an educator and in the lives of your students, this is the workshop for you. One Clip at a Time is a non-profit organization based in Tennessee that has created an engaging and interactive Social Studies/English/Service Learning program based on the theme of tolerance and diversity and an accompanying educator’s kit designed to motivate and empower students.

    The program crosses the curricula and is standards based. The movement is an outgrowth of the “Paper Clip Project” which brought world wide attention to Whitwell, Tennessee after it was captured in the award-winning film, Paper Clips. Throughout the course of the program, students learn the history of the Holocaust and develop an awareness of the impact it had on the world. Students then discover ways to make positive changes in their own classrooms and communities and are encouraged to continually make a difference.

    At HMTC the two-day session will be conducted by One Clip/Three Village Educators, Irene Berman and Kate Hunter. The first day will include training on the One Clip curriculum and the second day will include action planning and implementation, Survivor testimonies and a museum tour. Lunch is included both days. Attendees will receive their own One Clip Kit, which includes a copy of the Paper Clips film, an informational CD, detailed lesson plans, student journals and primary source documents.

    Space is limited. Register at www.oneclipatatime.org. For more information contact Tracy Garrison-Feinberg at (516) 571-8040 or tracygarrisonfeinberg@hmtcli.org.
