I am a School Social Worker in an elementary school and the Center's volunteers came to run two programs for my 4th and 5th graders. The program was very beneficial to our 4th and 5th graders to learn about bullying and to see the connection to the Holocaust. The most important piece is to change the bystander into an upstander!!!

Let me first start out by saying that the wonderful thing about the HMTC is that they always stay in constant contact with me, year to year. In the beginning, I assumed I'd get the "freebie" offer, and then never hear from them again. Like clockwork, every year they extend an invite, with a seamless reservation process. The accommodate larger group sizes just to make sure we are able to attend. They even send us buses because we are the New York City and they are in Nassau County. It's a dream come true for teachers and students here at the Louis Armstrong Middle School. Now on to the actual day of the trip. Every year I bring my sixth graders. They enter the grounds as one type of child and leave a completely new one. The amount and the depth of knowledge, history, and overall humanitarian awareness is so precise and well thought out, it would take days, if not weeks, to get all of that in a classroom. Yet the staff and the volunteers (some are survivors as well) are able to convey such a powerful message in a full days workshop. The amount of empathy, sympathy, and acceptance for the people and the world around them skyrockets in just a few hours. The content is depressing, and uplifting and motivational at the same time. It puts perspective into every student's lives. And the teachers are at no loss either. Add on our WWII content, as well as survivor/author visits that have throughout the year, and this trip fits in perfectly. It has to be my favorite trip. I look forward to this trip every single year. Here's hoping that the HMTC is around for many years to come.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Watching my students transform into different people over the span of a few hours.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

become a member of the staff!

This is a wonderful organization that provides students with the opportunity to hear first hand accounts of the terrible events of the Holocaust. It is extremely important as this is the last generation that will be able to hear these amazing stories first hand!
