Holocaust Survivor Registry Updates Sought
 

HOUSTON, TX (Jan. 4, 2011) – Holocaust Museum Houston is completing an update of its registry of Holocaust survivors who made their lives in the Houston area after World War II and is now seeking information on those who may have lived in the area at one time.

More than 1,000 names have been added to the registry over the years by survivors themselves, families or friends.

“As we near the Museum’s 15th anniversary this March, we want to be certain we have made every effort to identify all of the Houston-area survivors so that they may be appropriately remembered in the years to come,” said Museum Executive Director Susan Myers. “Many may not have wanted to come forward in the early years, and others may have moved into the area since the last update.”

Survivors or family members who want to make sure their listings are included in the registry or who want to submit new listings should contact Pam Hamilton at 713-942-8000, ext. 129, or by e-mail to phamilton@hmh.org.

The registry includes information about local-area survivors, still living or deceased, including the survivor’s name at birth, date of birth, city of birth/origin, when he or she left Europe and arrived in Texas, any locations he or she may have been in hiding during the war, and any camps or ghettos at which the survivor was held. The registry is maintained for historical purposes only, and personal information will not be divulged by the Museum.
 
Holocaust Museum Houston is dedicated to educating people about the Holocaust, remembering the 6 million Jews and other innocent victims and honoring the survivors' legacy. Using the lessons of the Holocaust and other genocides, the Museum teaches the dangers of hatred, prejudice and apathy.

Holocaust Museum Houston’s Morgan Family Center is free and open to the public and is located in Houston’s Museum District at 5401 Caroline St., Houston, TX 77004. For more information about the Museum, call 713-942-8000 or visit www.hmh.org.
