THE TEXAS LIBERATOR: WITNESS TO THE HOLOCAUST
LOCATION: MINCBERG GALLERY
"The Texas Liberator: Witness to the Holocaust" tells the story of 24 U.S. soldiers who liberated the concentration camps in Europe at the end of World War II. Upon entering the camps, the soldiers were not prepared for the terror, torture and depravity they discovered. Although they were hailed as liberators by the prisoners, what the soldiers found haunted many of them for the rest of their lives.
 

BEARING WITNESS: A COMMUNITY REMEMBERS
LOCATION: PERMANENT EXHIBITION
This Permanent Exhibition is personalized with the testimony of Houston-area survivors who lived through a genocidal war that inflicted mass death on unprecedented numbers of innocent civilians. The exhibit begins by carrying visitors back to pre-war Europe and revealing the flourishing Jewish life and culture there.
