Holocaust Museum talk exposes horrors in Myanmar

The Island Now

The Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County will present a program, Atrocities in Myanmar: Rohingya are Being Raped and Murdered as You Read This, on Sunday, March 4 at 2 p.m. 

While the Myanmar government commits genocide against its citizens, it denies the atrocities to the world. Global silence and inaction allow the massacres and rapes to continue.  The Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center will host an international panel of activists, scholars and human rights attorneys to clarify what is really happening to the Rohingya people and what Americans can do to help.

Speakers will include Regina Paulose, international criminal Law and human rights attorney with A Contario; Nurul Islam, chair of the Arakan Rohingya National Organization; Adem Carroll, United Nations program director for the Burma Task Force; John Packer, professor and director of the Human Rights Centre at the University of Ottawa; and Malik Mujahid, chair of the Burma Task Force USA.

The Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center, Welwyn Preserve, is located at 100 Crescent Beach Road in Glen Cove.

There is a $10 suggested donation to attend. Seats are limited; reservations are recommended. RSVP to 516-571-8040 x107 or axelsarmiento@hmtcli.org.
