Houston: Holocaust Museum Houston

Holocaust Museum Houston

To honor victims and survivors, the Holocaust Museum Houston uses original films, artifacts, photographs and interactive displays to examine the causes and lessons of the genocide. It also details a lesser-known resistance event, “Operation Texas,” a plan spearheaded by Congressman Lyndon B. Johnson to smuggle hundreds of threatened Jews into Texas. Rare exhibits include children’s shoes from Poland’s Majdanek concentration camp, as well as a large collection of Nazi money used in Jewish ghettos and camps.
