Located in the Houston Museum District, the mission of the Holocaust Museum Houston is “educating people about the Holocaust, remembering the 6 million Jews and other innocent victims and honoring the survivors’ legacy.” The fourth largest Holocaust museum in the United States, the institution provides a sobering experience through a range of permanent and rotating exhibitions as well as events, research collections and a dedicated outreach program. Visitors will not only learn about the tragic event itself, but also what the victims went through by hearing their stories and seeing the Holocaust through their eyes.
Among the permanent exhibits, visitors will find “Bearing Witness: A Community Remembers,” a chilling display containing artifacts, Nazi propaganda and authentic film footage showing life from pre-war Europe through the Holocaust to life after the atrocity. There’s also “World War II Holocaust Railcar,” a rare WWII relic used to bring Jews to their death during the Holocaust, and “Danish Rescue Boat from World War II,” the type of boat used by Christians in Denmark to rescue more than 7,200 Jews from Nazi Germany.
