“Genocide in the News”
April 10, 2015 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM
Location Avrohm I. Wisenberg Multi-Purpose Learning Center
 
What is genocide? This term is used in headlines all over the world, but what does it mean? And what can you do to stop it? On Friday, April 10, 2014, as part of Genocide Awareness Month, Holocaust Museum Houston will provide a one-day workshop examining genocide today. This workshop will examine the development of the controversial definition of genocide and look at current genocides in the world. Using primary source materials and film segments, participants will be prepared to make pedagogical choices as they implement studies related to genocide. Time also will be spent considering the concept of “Responsibility to Protect” and the role of the U.S. in genocide prevention, with a focus on how to affect real change from your classroom. This program will meet the TEKS requirements for Social Studies (particularly World History) and English/Language Arts teachers in grades three through 12. Art and music educators who wish to incorporate these histories in their studies also may wish to consider attending. This workshop has been approved by the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented for six hours in Creativity and Instructional Strategies. The fee for this program is $20 per person, which includes workshop materials but not lunch. Registration is limited to 40 teachers and must take place by April 8, 2015. To register, visit www.hmh.org

Lyndon Baines Johnson Moral Courage Award Dinner
April 30, 2015 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Location Hilton Americas-Houston, 1600 Lamar, Houston, TX 77010
 
Join us for Holocaust Museum Houston’s biggest event of the year, the presentation of the 2015 Lyndon Baines Johnson Moral Courage Award. This year’s honorees, Dr. Ho Feng-Shan and Chiune Sugihara, comprise a strong parallel, in that both were Consular officials during the Holocaust — one in Vienna and one in Lithuania. Both were far from Jewish but were people with a conscience.  Both defied their orders and issued thousands of visas to Jews destined for the concentration camps of Europe to escape to China and Japan. They saved not only those thousands, but tens of thousands of their families that flourished because of such righteous acts. Their moral courage as individuals that stood up against the tide is what we teach at our Museum. Both men have been recognized by Israel’s Yad Vashem as "Righteous Among The Nations” — an award that is extremely special and rare. To reserve your ticket or table, please call 713-527-1612 or email hmhdinner@hmh.org.
