Holocaust Museum Houston's young professionals group, NEXTGen, invites you to join us for a private look at Stories of Survival: Object. Image. Memory. This epic exhibition showcases more than 60 personal artifacts brought to America by Survivors of the Holocaust and other genocides. Exploring the relationship between objects, their meaning to the original owner and subsequent significance, each artifact is dramatically paired with oversized photographs by renowned documentarian Jim Lommasson with handwritten responses by Survivors or their family members.
For your safety, the Museum will be closed to the public and social distancing guidelines will be strictly followed. Face masks are required. If you do not have one, the Museum will provide one.
Special thanks to Home Light for sponsoring this event and to Taco Cabana for generously donating tacos! This event is open to the public but RSVP is required.
