PERMANENT EXHIBITS
Bearing Witness: A Community Remembers 
Authentic film footage, artifacts, photographs and documents show life in pre-war Europe, the Nazi move toward the “Final Solution” and life after the Holocaust. Our 1942 Holocaust-era railcar and Danish rescue boat teach the lessons of individual responsibility and how two different populations dealt with evil and injustice.


 

A celebration of Survival

ON VIEW THROUGH MAY 30, 2017
"A Celebration of Survival" by Barbara Hines"
Mincberg Gallery
An immersive exhibition designed to honor the heroes, victims, and survivors of the Holocaust, “A Celebration of Survival,” by Barbara Hines, masterfully addresses the Holocaust framed in a message of redemption and forgiveness, inspiring visitors to focus on what “could be” rather than the horrors of the past. The most technologically advanced exhibit in the Museum’s 20-year history, “A Celebration of Survival” includes an audio-visual installation using New Dimensions in Testimony, created by USC Shoah Foundation, where patrons can engage in a “virtual conversation” with the hologram of Holocaust survivor Pinchas Gutter and get real-time answers to direct questions.

ADDITIONAL EXHIBITS:
“Bittersweet Harvest:  The Bracero Program, 1942-1964”
  December 9, 2016 through May 14, 2017

ALL BEHAVIORS COUNT

WHERE WE STAND:

As an institution of memory and education, Holocaust Museum Houston takes our responsibility to be a moral leader seriously. We take the words of Elie Wiesel to heart: “I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation.”

Grounded in historical facts, we teach the dangers of hatred, prejudice, and apathy. The history of the Holocaust demonstrates that unchecked bigotry and intolerance lead to persecution and violence. We stand in solidarity with all vulnerable groups, and offer a space to learn and understand the role of a citizen in our global community.
NUESTRA POSICIÓN:

Como institución de memoria y educación, el Museo Holocausto de Houston toma nuestra responsabilidad de ser un líder moral seriamente. Tomamos las palabras de Elie Wiesel al corazón: " Yo juré nunca quedarme callado cuando y donde los seres humanos pasen sufrimiento y la humillación."

Utilizando los hechos históricos como la base, enseñamos los peligros del odio, los prejuicios, y la apatía. La historia del Holocausto demuestra que la intolerancia y la intolerancia sin oposición conduce la persecución y la violencia. Estamos en solidaridad con todos los grupos vulnerables y ofrecemos un espacio para aprender y comprender la parte que nosotros tenemos como ciudadanos en nuestra comunidad global.
