The Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County (HMTC) kicked off its inaugural
Walk the Talk…Never Again 5K with a ribbon cutting on the grounds
of Welwyn Preserve in Glen Cove.

The walk was a fundraiser to support HMTC’s education programs across Long Island that empower, mobilize and create upstanders—people who stand up to anti-Semitism and intolerance and advocate acceptance for all.

Rescue was the theme of the event and 25 posters, which were researched and created by the youth of the Babylonian Jewish Center in Great Neck under the leadership of Anna Hakakian, highlighted extraordinary actions of rescue by ordinary people during the Holocaust.
