North Babylon High School ninth graders learned about bias and prejudice in a three-part workshop created by a partnership between North Babylon Schools and The Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center. 

In their Global History classes, students learned about the Pyramid of Hate and the effects of bias and prejudice on society. The lessons continued at the Holocaust Center, where students participated in a workshop to identify instances of bias and prejudice in their lives. This visit ended with students listening to a testimony from a Holocaust survivor. 

The third part of the workshop was a discussion about acts of courage led by the Holocaust Center’s Director of Education Helen Turner. Students learned about acts of courage from the Holocaust and present day. They were also asked to take the 30-day courage challenge. They all pledged to perform their own acts of courage against bias and prejudice.
