New Docent Information Session
July 26, 2018 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Location Albert and Ethel Herzstein Theater

With the expansion to more than double the size of its building at 5401 Caroline St. well underway, Holocaust Museum Houston is looking to train new docents to accommodate the myriad of new exhibitions and expected increase in visitors. Those interested in Holocaust history, art, education and committed to impacting the lives of others are encouraged to attend. Bilingual Spanish speakers are strongly encouraged to attend. Prospective docents who attend the information session will learn about the docent training process, the expectations of a docent and how they can apply.

New docents will lead tours through a permanent exhibit much different than the previous one. "Bearing Witness," the Museum's permanent exhibit with personalized testimony and artifacts donated by Houston-area Holocaust Survivors, will expand with modern, interactive exhibit designs and increase the information within each unit. Both the Danish Rescue Boat and German World War II-era Railcar were moved inside the climate-controlled structure for preservation to ensure future generations of visitors and students will learn from these valuable artifacts. For the first time, all exhibit signage will be in Spanish and English, making an even greater need for Spanish-speaking docents.

For more information, interested parties can email volunteers@hmh.org.
