HOUSTON, TX (Aug. 27, 2010) – Children and adults will have the opportunity to create their own “stained glass window” using contact paper and tissue paper as they study the lessons of Holocaust Museum Houston’s exhibit “Never Let it Rest!,” which includes a glass window that was created for the exhibit during this year’s annual Houston Museum District Day.
All activities will take place Saturday, Sept. 25, 2010, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Museum’s Morgan Family Center, 5401 Caroline St., in Houston’s Museum District. Admission and all of the day’s activities are free.
Also that Saturday, three Houston-area survivors who endured the Nazi oppression will speak about their experiences, in appearances at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.
Patrons will have the opportunity to fill out how they will make a difference in our world during the next week on a sticker to wear during the day, and they will also learn how they can be an upstander in their communities.
