PERMANENT EXHIBITS
Bearing Witness: A Community Remembers 
Authentic film footage, artifacts, photographs and documents show life in pre-war Europe, the Nazi move toward the “Final Solution” and life after the Holocaust. Our 1942 Holocaust-era railcar and Danish rescue boat teach the lessons of individual responsibility and how two different populations dealt with evil and injustice.


 

THE BRACERO PROGRAM

ON VIEW THROUGH MAY 14, 2017
"BITTERSWEET HARVEST:  THE BRACERO PROGRAM, 1942-1964"
Central Gallery
Holocaust Museum Houston’s first Spanish/English bilingual exhibit, showcases the bracero program, the largest guest worker program in U.S. History, which brought millions of Mexican nationals north to work on short-term labor contracts. The work was backbreaking and living conditions poor, but the program offered Mexican men economic opportunities and much-needed work. Their contributions to communities in Mexico and the U.S. have had a lasting impact on the political, economic, social, and cultural landscapes of both nations. The exhibit is accompanied by an oral history video of local braceros’ stories as documented by Houston’s Dr. Jesus Esparza.
