I bring classes of college student to HMTC for a required visit to a Holocaust museum or memorial. The tours that have been led by Dr. Sarah Cushman are EXCELLENT and highly appropriate for my students. I have had very unpleasant experiences at larger museums where the docents are more familiar with younger students. I always receive positive feedback from my students who are further enlightened even after the mid-point of the semester studying the Holocaust.
I have also personally benefited by attending excellent educator and special event programs at the HMTC.
A unique institution of memory and education dedicated to teaching the lessons of the Holocaust. With survivors and their descendants as speakers, a superb educational staff, state of the art exhibits, and hands on workshops, the work of promoting tolerance for all and combatting indifference continues daily for thousands of children and adults. Don't miss it!
The Tolerance Center is a meaningful addition to museums in Nassau County.It provides programs and lectures that are relevant to the youth of today and to remind us of the atrocities of the past. What is also extremely important to me as an educator, are the lectures and discussions made available. I take advantage of the wonderful speakers that are always willing to provide.
