Holocaust Museum Houston Adds Regional Advisors
 

HOUSTON, TX (July 20, 2005) – Reinforcing its role as the largest Holocaust museum and educational center in the Southwest, Holocaust Museum Houston has added six representatives from communities across Texas to its Advisory Board for 2005-2006.

"Holocaust Museum Houston is unique for this part of our country. We are the largest, and most active Holocaust group in the Southwest, and it makes sense for us to have advisors that reflect the concerns and interests of our many patrons and supporters outside Houston," said Peter Berkowitz, chairman of the Museum’s Board of Directors.

The Advisory Board for 2005-2006 includes Bobby Epstein and Gregg Philipson of Austin; Israel Fogiel of San Antonio; Glenda Kane of Corpus Christi; Bernard Rapoport of Waco; and Regina J. Rogers of Beaumont.

Other Houston area members of the Advisory Board are: the Hon. Laurie Bricker; Linda Eisemann; Celina Fein; the Hon. Mark Goldberg; Janis Goldstein; Roslyn Haikin; Walter Kase; Marcus Leuchter, Ph.D.; Max Levit; Hans Mayer; Barry Margolis; John Mendelsohn, M.D.; Frank Michel; Edith Mincberg; Ira Mitzner; Morris Penn; Garland Debner Pohl; the Hon. Gordon Quan; Ambassador Arthur Schechter; Mitzi Shure; Marsha Wallace; Mary Lee Webeck, Ph.D.; and Andrea White.

Holocaust Museum Houston promotes awareness and educates the public of the dangers of prejudice, hatred and violence against the backdrop of the Holocaust by fostering remembrance, understanding and education.

Holocaust Museum Houston is free and open to the public and is located in Houston's Museum District at 5401 Caroline St., Houston, TX 77004.
