Bonhoeffer Tours
October 20, 2012 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Location Morgan Family Center
Holocaust Museum Houston will offer tours focusing on the life and ministry of the German Lutheran theologian Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer each Saturday in October at 11:30 a.m.  Bonhoeffer's  actions against the Nazi Party and his message to the church in the context of the events of the Holocaust will be the focus of tours of the Museum's permanent exhibit, German railcar and Danish fishing boat. Tours include a look at the early influences on Bonhoeffer before the Holocaust, his organization of the Confessing Church to stand with the Jews in reaction to the Aryan clause, his involvement in assassination attempts on Adolf Hitler and his imprisonment and execution at the Flossenburg concentration camp by direct order from Hitler.  The tours include the stories of the Bishop of Munster and Pastor Trocme, church leaders who strived to protect victims from Nazi tyranny.  Admission and the walk-in tour are free. Tour sizes are limited, and advance reservation is requested. To register for any tour, visit http://www.hmh.org/RegisterEvent.aspx to RSVP online. To schedule a separate private group tour for 10 or more in advance, visit the Museum's Web site at http://www.hmh.org and check the “Plan Your Visit tab.”
