Bittersweet Harvest: The Bracero Program, 1942-1964
Friday, Dec. 9, 2016 – Sunday, May. 14, 2017
Holocaust Museum Houston will open its first Spanish/English bilingual exhibit, “Bittersweet Harvest: The Bracero Program, 1942-1964,” Friday, December 9, 2016. The exhibit showcases the Bracero program, the largest guest worker program in U.S. History, which brought millions of Mexican nationals north to work on short-term labor contracts. The work was backbreaking and living conditions poor, but the program offered Mexican men economic opportunities and much-needed work. Their contributions to communities in Mexico and the U.S. have had a lasting impact on the political, economic, social, and cultural landscapes of both nations.
