During this week when people all over the world are celebrating the Passover holiday or observing Holy Week in preparation for the celebration of Easter, we at the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County join with all who value decency and humanity, and abhor violence, to convey our profound sadness over the tragic shootings in Overland Park, Kansas. Our hearts go out to the families of those killed, and to the community of Overland Park. We must all commit ourselves to fighting prejudice and hate in our society that lead to these kind of outrageous incidents.
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.
