Mrs. Susan Poulos’ Advanced Placement United States Government and Politics classes visited the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County in Glen Cove, New York, on Sept. 25. The group listened to Holocaust survivor Eva Kessner’s powerful and inspirational testimony and an informative presentation by Helen Turner, director of youth education. 
 
The full-day experience that the seniors received inspired them to think about their political science research/civics project. AP United States Government and Politics requires students to explore how they can affect and are affected by government and politics throughout their life. The Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center provided a program to support this research project by enlightening students on how to become the change agent for tolerance and openness.
 
Special thanks to Breanne Brooks, Ilise Friedman, Susan Herchenhous, Ms. Kessner and Ms. Turner and the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County for making this moving day with students possible.
