The Holocaust of World War II made it clear that there were only four roles any individual can play in society.  If we are not to be victims, then our only choices are to be perpetrators of evil and injustice, indifferent bystanders who allow it to exist in our world or rescuers who act to end it. 

Which Role Do You Choose?

When you choose to be a member, you choose to help our Museum Stop Hate. Starting Here. Your choice makes a difference in our world. 

Your membership allows Holocaust Museum Houston to help teach the dangers of hatred, prejudice and apathy against the backdrop of the largest genocide ever to occur in our world – the Holocaust. You can take a stand to remember the 6 million Jews and millions of other innocent victims who perished and join us in honoring the survivors' legacy.
