Holocaust Programs

The lessons from the Holocaust hold ever greater relevance today, with the acceleration of genocidal violence, the expansion of refugee communities, and the deterioration of human rights. Our Holocaust Program provides students with a contextual, relevant history of the Holocaust. The interactive, multimedia program includes an age-appropriate tour of our museum, eyewitness testimony from a Holocaust Survivor or Liberator, and tailored dialogues to promote reflection and retention. Two of the primary lessons of the Holocaust are to teach students how to recognize intolerance, and how to take action safely and effectively against any form of bias or injustice—from bullying to genocide. All Center Education Programs, when used in conjunction with the preparatory and follow up materials provided, comply with the New York State Common Core Standard for grades 5 to 12. In English Language Arts, our programs promote content area reading and writing, listening and speaking, and language usage appropriate to grade level. In addition, the museum exhibit and supporting educational materials contribute to literacy in History, Geography, and Science, predominantly through informational text, using an interdisciplinary approach.

Advances in communication technology have transformed school bullying into publicized persecution with global ramifications. The victimization of bullying is now caught on camera and broadcast into cyberspace. Some young people have felt that the only way to escape their torment was to end their lives. These preventable tragedies have forced society to create new terms to describe the horror of suicide due to bullying: bullycide and cybercide. Suicide prevention can sometimes begin with a simple intervention during a bullying incident. Bullying in all its manifestations (cyber, verbal, social, physical or sexual) can be stopped. Our interactive, multimedia Tolerance and Anti-Bullying Workshops not only educate students about the roles they choose (bully, bystander or Upstander), but they also provide safe, effective tools to challenge prejudice and harassment. Trained facilitators, films, activities, and small group discussions help students examine and reflect upon their choices and actions. Our Tolerance and Anti-Bullying Workshops fulfill New York Social Studies Standards 2, 3 and 5, Cultural Diversity, World History and Geography, and Individual Development and Identity. It also conforms to all four New York ELA Standards, Use of Language in various forms for Understanding, Response and Expression, Analysis and Evaluation, and Social Interaction.

Each spring, the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center offers competitions for students centered on a theme of social justice, tolerance, and respect for diversity. The competitions offer students the opportunity to showcase their creative talents. Categories are: Literature, Art, Music, and Multimedia. Separate judging occurs for middle school and high shool entries. The annual competitions culminate at our annual awards ceremony in May. First place winners in Literature and Music present their submissions at the ceremony. First place Art entries appear on our website and on the cover of our printed Competition Journal. Both first and second place winners receive United States Bonds. Honorable mentions are published and publicly recognized. All students who submit an entry receive a certificate of participation. Competition conforms to NYS Social Studies Standards 2, 3, & 5; ELA Standards 1-4.

Each October, the Center invites student leaders from across Long Island to participate in a half-day conference. Students hear from a keynote speaker, an individual who has demonstrated extraordinary courage at intervening or preventing intolerance, and then small groups form to dialogue with each other to exchange ideas and action plans to combat bullying or prejudice in their own schools. Annual Middle School Conferences fulfill NYS Social Studies Standards 2, 3 &5; ELA Standards 1-4.

For classes that are unable to visit our Center, we offer the unique opportunity to meet and interact with a Holocaust Survivor via videoconferences. One-hour sessions include a brief historical overview which provides a context for the Survivor’s testimony. Following the Survivor’s oral history, students have the opportunity to ask questions and exchange thoughts on current events and their own personal experiences with prejudice. These programs have a profound impact despite the geographical distance between participants. Sessions can be tailored to the audience. Possible topics include: Resistance by children and teens; Rescue actions and the Heroes who saved children; Childhood during oppression and persecution; Surviving genocide and transcending trauma. We serve schools across the nation and the world. This program conforms to National Social Studies Standards 2, 3, 5, 6, 9 & 10; ELA Standards 6 & 8-12.
