The Mission of the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County is to teach the history of the Holocaust and its lessons through education and community outreach. We teach about the dangers of antisemitism, racism, bullying and all other manifestations of intolerance. We promote resistance to prejudice and advocate respect for every human being. Our state-of-the-art Holocaust museum is the only one of its kind on Long Island. The museum presents a detailed and comprehensive chronicle of the Holocaust, and utilizes multimedia displays, artifacts, archival footage, testimonies from local Survivors and Liberators, and encompasses a special gallery for changing exhibits. Special programs are scheduled throughout the year which include lectures by authors, artists, and academics, as well as films and art exhibits. The Center serves approximately 35,000 people each year, the majority of whom are students in junior and senior high school in New York's Nassau, Suffolk, Kings and Queens counties.

Through videoconferencing, we are able to serve schools throughout the nation and the world. Each presentation stresses the importance of the students understanding the Holocaust and its impact on individual human lives, so that students will practice tolerance and help reduce prejudice and bullying in our world today. These programs have a profound impact despite the geographical distance between participants.
