Press Release
 
The Destroyed Communities Memorial at Holocaust Museum Houston Destroyed Communities Memorial

No city, town or village was too small to escape the diabolical schemes of the Nazis to annihilate the Jewish people and the whole infrastructure that had supported them. Six million Jews perished, but 20,000 Jewish communities also were destroyed. Holocaust Museum Houston's Destroyed Communities slope serves as a permanent memorial to those Jewish communities that were obliterated during the Holocaust, with more than 340 communities remembered on the memorial.
