Lyndon Baines Johnson Moral Courage Award Dinner
April 30, 2015 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Location Hilton Americas-Houston, 1600 Lamar, Houston, TX 77010
 
Join us for Holocaust Museum Houston’s biggest event of the year, the presentation of the 2015 Lyndon Baines Johnson Moral Courage Award. This year’s honorees, Dr. Ho Feng-Shan and Chiune Sugihara, comprise a strong parallel, in that both were Consular officials during the Holocaust — one in Vienna and one in Lithuania. Both were far from Jewish but were people with a conscience.  Both defied their orders and issued thousands of visas to Jews destined for the concentration camps of Europe to escape to China and Japan. They saved not only those thousands, but tens of thousands of their families that flourished because of such righteous acts. Their moral courage as individuals that stood up against the tide is what we teach at our Museum. Both men have been recognized by Israel’s Yad Vashem as "Righteous Among The Nations” — an award that is extremely special and rare. To reserve your ticket or table, please call 713-527-1612 or email hmhdinner@hmh.org.
