Holocaust Museum Houston is dedicated to educating people about the Holocaust, remembering the 6 million Jews and other innocent victims, and honoring the survivors’ legacy. Using the lessons of the Holocaust and other genocides, we teach the dangers of hatred, prejudice, and apathy.
In addition to establishing a permanent Holocaust Museum and memorial, the Museum’s program objectives are:
- To provide educational opportunities for students and the general public through exhibitions, programming, seminars and forums on issues of current concern stemming from the Holocaust and other genocides.
- To develop programs and materials for educators and assist them in teaching the Holocaust and related study areas.
- To collect and preserve all pertinent materials relating to the Holocaust - archives, documentation, art, photographs, memorabilia, testimonies of Holocaust survivors, rescuers, and concentration camp liberators, and to adapt these materials into exhibits, interactive audiovisual programs, lesson plans and other educational aids.
Charged with educating students and the public about the dangers of prejudice and hatred in society, Holocaust Museum Houston opened its doors in March of 1996. Since that time, impassioned notes, poems, artwork, and other gifts, from school children and adults alike, attest to the life-changing thoughts generated by just one visit to this unique facility.
