  • The Art of Marc Chagall: War and Peace through Yiddish Eyes

    The Art of Marc Chagall: War and Peace through Yiddish Eyes

    Journalist and author Linda Burghardt will present a slide show and discussion about the Russian-French artist Marc Chagall. Referred to as “the quintessential Jewish artist of the twentieth century” and “the last survivor of the first generation of European modernists,” Chagall used the medium of stained glass and large scale paintings to blend Eastern European Jewish folk culture and modern art. Dr. Burghardt will discuss Chagall’s life and artistic accomplishments, connecting his work to the world in which he lived, including Tsarist Russia, Nazi controlled Europe, and post-war America.

  • International Holocaust Remembrance Day

    International Holocaust Remembrance Day

    Sunday, January 26, 2019 | 1:00 PM

    At the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County

    In observance of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, HMTC will host a screening of “Jan Karski and the Lords of Humanity,” with commentary by the film’s award-winner director, Slavomir Grunberg.

    Jan Karski, risked his life to try to prevent the Holocaust. Using a groundbreaking technique that combines unique archival footage with animated sequences, Emmy-winning filmmaker Slawomir Grünberg, re-creates the death-defying mission of Jan Karski, the Polish underground courier who travelled across occupied Europe, infiltrating the Warsaw Ghetto and a Nazi transit camp to deliver eyewitness accounts of the unfolding Holocaust to the Allied powers. Karski carried his reports to Britain and the United States, hoping that it would shake the conscience of the world leaders or – as he would call them – the Lords of Humanity.

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

    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.
