Holocaust Museum Houston
Holocaust Museum Houston is dedicated to educating people about the Holocaust, remembering the 6 million Jews and millions of other innocent victims and honoring the survivors' legacy. Using the lessons of the Holocaust and other genocides, the Museum teaches the dangers of hatred prejudice and apathy to tens of thousands of people worldwide each year. Our changing exhibit galleries house special exhibitions complementing and further exploring the issues presented in our Permanent Exhibit entitled "Bearing Witness: A Community Remembers." Our changing exhibitions are designed to be intellectually and aesthetically challenging and to encourage visitors to study the Holocaust, contemporary genocides and related topics in greater detail and from a variety of perspectives. The Permanent Exhibit concludes with the continuously running 30-minute films "Voices" and "Voices II" which share the lessons of the Holocaust in the words of Houston-area residents who lived through that experience. The Museum's newest additions include an authentic 1942 World War II rail car of the type used to carry millions of Jews to their deaths and a Danish fishing boat of the type used to save more than 7200 Danish Jews from almost certain execution.
