HMH Named “Community of Respect” by ADL for Fourth Consecutive Year
 

HOUSTON, TX (May 19, 2011) – Holocaust Museum Houston has been honored for the fourth consecutive year as a “Community of Respect™” by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) Southwest Region.

The designation was awarded to the Museum based on its commitment to a “Resolution of Respect” that pledges the Museum will combat prejudice and will work to stop those who, because of hate or ignorance, would cause harm to or violate the civil rights of any individual. The Museum also was cited for completing three activities that empowered participants to promote respect for individual and group differences while challenging prejudice and bigotry.

The honor was presented to HMH Chairman Michael S. Goldberg by Michele Croft, a member of the board of ADL’s Southwest Region, during a meeting of the Museum’s Board of Directors on May 19.

“This reinforces that Holocaust Museum Houston not only is dedicated to remembering the past and the lessons it teaches us, but also taking those lessons forward and creating a future where hatred is rejected and respect is valued,” said Martin Cominsky, southwest regional director for the ADL.

“The Museum is very proud to receive the award and that it came from the ADL,” Goldberg said. “The ADL stands for the same principles that founded this Museum: teaching respect and a call to action to end bigotry and hate everywhere.”

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 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.
