We envision a society that transforms ignorance into respect for human life, that remembers the Holocaust, and reaffirms an individual’s responsibility for the collective actions of society.
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, we teach the dangers of hatred, prejudice and apathy.
Holocaust Museum Houston builds a more humane society by promoting responsible individual behavior, cultivating civility and pursuing social justice.
In order to build a more equitable institution, Holocaust Museum Houston strives to integrate diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion into our museum practices. The core principles of our Vision, Mission, and Public Values statements guide our decision-making, program design, and how we cultivate our leaders. We welcome everyone as we support and engage people and the diverse communities we serve.
