The Texas Liberator: Witness to the Holocaust Exhibit travels through Texas!
The traveling exhibit, The Texas Liberator: Witness to the Holocaust shares the first-hand accounts of Texan soldiers who witnessed Nazi concentration camps during World War II. After an introduction that sets the stage for World War II, these first-hand accounts serve as witness to the persecution and murder of 6 million Jews in Europe. Upcoming exhibit schedule includes:
Midland county Downtown Library
Hutto High School
Fort Hood, Killeen
National Museum of the Pacific War, Fredericksburg
The Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission (THGC) began the Texas Liberator Project to preserve history and educate future generations about the horrors of the Holocaust and genocides. The project includes an interactive website, traveling exhibit, a printed book, and an Honor Roll of more than 350 Texas liberators identified and available at texasliberators.org. Original exhibit design produced by the Museum of Texas Tech University.
The mission of the THGC is to promote awareness and enhance understanding of the Holocaust and other genocides in the world. Since its founding in 2009, the THGC has dedicated its resources, energy, and expertise to the education of teachers and students to better recognize and acknowledge the consequences of hatred, bigotry, and apathy. Through education and engagement, the THGC seeks to remind the public of its collective responsibility in not only preventing but ending, once and for all, this type of human cruelty.
