The Holocaust: History and Lessons
October 10 - October 30
The Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center (HMTC) of Nassau County hosts this three-session seminar, an introductory course in the history of the Holocaust from its beginnings in anti-Semitism through the Final Solution.
Participants will investigate the roles, choices, and behaviors observed during the Holocaust and how one can apply them to contemporary issues, with activities including a docent-led tour of HMTC’s museum, hearing survivor testimony first-hand, and a panel discussion about all aspects of the lives of children of Holocaust survivors.
The seminar will be facilitated by Gail Kastenolz and Meryl Menashe, two second-generation Holocaust survivors, speakers, longtime museum educators, and leaders in Holocaust education.
Dates: Thursday, Oct. 10, Thursday, Oct. 24, and Wednesday Oct. 30.
To register: (516) 571-8040 or firstname.lastname@example.org. $100 per participant (light breakfast, lunch, and materials included).
