Opening Reception: "Soul Survivors"
July 9, 2015 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Location Central Gallery
 
 The compelling exhibition, "Soul Survivors," will be the focus of Holocaust Museum Houston’s newest show highlighting several Houston-area Survivors of the Holocaust. The exhibit is comprised of seven composite art drawings by Lois Gibson, forensic artist for the Houston Police Department and other area law enforcement agencies. Gibson worked with five Survivors to sketch images of family members, who perished in the Holocaust, strictly from the Survivor’s memory. On display in the Central Gallery, July 10, 2015 through September 13, 2015, this exhibition provides a poignant expression of those lost in the Holocaust through the technique of forensic art. Members of the Museum are invited to a free preview reception from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, July 9, 2015. To join or renew a membership to attend, email membership@hmh.org or call 713-942-8000, ext. 116.

“Hitler on Trial”
July 23, 2015 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Location Albert and Ethel Herzstein Theater
 
This 90-minute film concerns the largely forgotten story of Hans Litten, a German lawyer who took on Adolf Hitler. Litten was half-Jewish and, needless to say, when he was later arrested and sent to the camps he was forced to wear a yellow star. In the Eden Dance Palace Trial of 1931, in which four Nazi storm troopers stood accused of criminal assault and attempted murder, Litten, a lawyer for the prosecution, requested the presence of Hitler as a witness. At the trial, Hans clearly outwitted Hitler, who was frequently unable to answer his questions. The Brown Shirts were convicted, but Litten’s victory was short-lived as, two years later, Hitler became chancellor, and Litten was arrested. However, Litten continued his resistance against the Nazis and fought back from the concentration camps. Admission is free, but seating is limited and advance reservations are requested.
