Texas Liberator Exhibition Opens in Houston

The exhibition The Texas Liberator: Witness to the Holocaust opens Sept. 7, 2018, at the Holocaust Museum Houston. The exhibit is the first full traveling exhibit from the Museum of Texas Tech University. It will be on display through Oct. 28, 2018.

The exhibition debuted Aug. 17, 2017, at the Museum. Through the stories of 21 Texas veterans who helped to liberate the German concentration camp, the exhibit only provide a context for Second World War, a history of the Holocaust and the Liberation, but also will offer an interactive, engaging experience of walking between 21 panels, each one honoring a Texas Liberator featured in this project.

The exhibit, which was created with the generous support of the Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission, also features an Honor Roll - a wall with the names of over 300 Liberators the commission has recovered in their efforts to record and educate a wider public on the history of holocaust and genocide in the past and the present.

The exhibit is receiving news coverage around the state, from the Houston Chronicle and the San Antonio Express-News.
