LONG BRANCH — An interactive, educational experience dubbed the "Hate Ends Now" tour will be at The Chabad of The Shore on Thursday — after a few other stops in Monmouth County.
The harrowing exhibit to commemorate the real atrocities of the Holocaust features "The Cattle Car: Stepping In and Out of Darkness," centered around a replica of a World War II-era cattle car used to transport Jewish people and other targeted groups to concentration camps.
"The Holocaust was Nazi Germany’s deliberate, organized, state-sponsored persecution and machine-like murder of approximately six million European Jews and at least five million prisoners of war, Romany, Jehovah’s Witnesses, homosexuals, and other victims," according to the World War II Museum in New Orleans.
Inside the touring structure, a 360-degree digital experience displays footage dating from 1933-1945 as well as personal accounts from Holocaust survivors.
The exhibit to fight antisemitism was created in a partnership between ShadowLight and the Orthodox Union’s Southern NCSY.
It has so far visited the Oakhurst area, Ocean Township High School and Monmouth University while in New Jersey.
The self-billed mission of Hate Ends Now is "encouraging people to reflect on the depths of human error while inspiring thoughtful conversations about genocide and indifference as they participate in The Cattle Car Experience.
"We also want to motivate individuals to get involved in preventing hate crimes and maintaining a sense of unity with each other."

These are the best hiking spots in New Jersey
A trip to New Jersey doesn't have to be all about the beach. Our state has some incredible trails, waterfalls, and lakes to enjoy.
From the Pine Barrens to the Appalachian Trail to the hidden gems of New Jersey, you have plenty of options for a great hike. Hiking is such a great way to spend time outdoors and enjoy nature, plus it's a great workout.
Before you go out on the trails and explore some of our listeners' suggestions, I have some tips on hiking etiquette from the American Hiking Society.
If you are going downhill and run into an uphill hiker, step to the side and give the uphill hiker space. A hiker going uphill has the right of way unless they stop to catch their breath.
Always stay on the trail, you may see side paths, unless they are marked as an official trail, steer clear of them. By going off-trail you may cause damage to the ecosystems around the trail, the plants, and wildlife that live there.
You also do not want to disturb the wildlife you encounter, just keep your distance from the wildlife and continue hiking.
Bicyclists should yield to hikers and horses. Hikers should also yield to horses, but I’m not sure how many horses you will encounter on the trails in New Jersey.
If you are thinking of bringing your dog on your hike, they should be leashed, and make sure to clean up all pet waste.
Lastly, be mindful of the weather, if the trail is too muddy, it's probably best to save your hike for another day.
