Book Discussion: “The Train to Crystal City” by Jan Jarboe Russell
October 26, 2016 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Location Conference Room
This October, The Boniuk Library teams up with Gulf Coast Reads to present a discussion of “The Train to Crystal City” by Jan Jarboe Russell. Focusing on a little-known event in American history that has long been kept quiet, this dramatic account exposes a secret FDR-approved American internment camp in Texas during World War II where hundreds of prisoners were exchanged for other Americans behind enemy lines in Japan and Germany. Gulf Coast Reads is an annual regional reading initiative focused on promoting the simultaneous reading or listening to a selected title by those living along the upper Texas Gulf Coast. The reading initiative’s goal is to encourage our communities to read the same title during the month of October in order to encourage readers to come together in discussions about it with neighbors, co-workers, friends and their families, as well as in classrooms and in libraries throughout the region. This event is free. Registration is limited to 12 participants, but the discussion may be offered on a second date. If registration is full, call 713-942-8000, ext. 110 or email library@hmh.org to add your name to an interest list.

Bonhoeffer Tours
October 29, 2016 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Location Morgan Family Center
Holocaust Museum Houston will offer tours focusing on the life and ministry of the German Lutheran theologian Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer each Saturday in October. Bonhoeffer's actions against the Nazi Party and his message to the church in the context of the events of the Holocaust will be the focus of tours of the Museum's permanent exhibit, German railcar and Danish fishing boat. Tours include a look at the early influences on Bonhoeffer before the Holocaust, his organization of the Confessing Church to stand with the Jews in reaction to the Aryan clause, his involvement in assassination attempts on Adolf Hitler and his imprisonment and execution at the Flossenburg concentration camp by direct order from Hitler. The tours include the stories of the Bishop of Munster and Pastor Trocme, church leaders who strived to protect victims from Nazi tyranny. Admission and the walk-in tour are $8. To register for any tour, call 713-527-1602 or e-mail tours@hmh.org.
