STATEMENT BY THE HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL & TOLERANCE CENTER OF NASSAU COUNTY CONCERNING THE KKK
Recruitment literature purportedly from the Ku Klux Klan has recently been distributed in several Suffolk County communities. The KKK is a symbol of hate, intolerance and violence against minorities and cannot be allowed to establish and maintain a presence on Long Island. The Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County urges all people of good will to come together to say “no” to the KKK and to assure every segment of our diverse community that they are welcome and safe here. Hate crimes are on the rise and our Center remains committed to standing up against intolerance and extremism in all of its forms.
The mission of the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center is to teach the history of the Holocaust and its lessons through education and community outreach. We teach about the dangers of anti-Semitism, racism, and all other manifestations of intolerance from bullying to genocide. We promote resistance to prejudice and advocate respect for every human being.

22nd Annual Tribute Dinner
Our student workshops teach anti-bullying and anti-bias skills by focusing on the roles of the bystander and the upstander. We promote respect and acceptance by applying the lessons of the Holocaust to today's issues of prejudice, apathy, and intolerance.
ADULT ENRICHMENT AND CONTINUING EDUCATION
Our adult programs provide effective tools and knowledge essential for combating bias and fostering appreciation for diversity. Workshops and seminars are tailored to suit the needs and interests of professionals working in any field, including educators, military personnel, physicians, corporate employees, and hospital.
LAW ENFORCEMENT AND SOCIETY
This program is provided to Nassau and Suffolk County Police Departments and is required for cadets from both counties. Developed by the US Holocaust Memorial Museum and the Anti-Defamation League, this workshop first examines the role of the police under Nazism, and then contrasts it to current law enforcement in America. Our Center is one of only three organizations outside of Washington DC that is authorized to conduct this program.
