Guardian of the Human Spirit Award
 

Holocaust Museum Houston established the Guardian of the Human Spirit award in 1997 as a platform for acknowledging dedicated Houstonians who have worked to enhance the lives of others and to better humankind.

 

Proceeds from our annual luncheon presentation of this award are used to continue the Museum's worldwide educational programming and its policy of free admission to the general public seven days a week so that there is never a financial barrier to anyone interested in learning the lessons of the Holocaust. Last year’s event drew more than 700 attendees.

Last year's recipient was one of the community's most civic-minded citizens, Ric Campo, chairman and CEO of Camden Property Trust.
