The Yom HaShoah Virtual Observance will be live on Sunday, April 19, 2020 at 3:00 p.m. on this page and on the Museum’s Youtube channel.
Please join the Museum in observance of Yom HaShoah, a day of remembrance for the 6 million Jewish people who lost their lives during the Holocaust. During this annual commemoration, marked by the 75th anniversary of liberation, we will mourn the loss of all who perished, honor those who survived and come together as a community to remember and reflect.
Coordinated by the Yom HaShoah Steering Committee and Holocaust Museum Houston

On April 19, 1943, the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising began. Our colleagues have created resources to offer educators for their Yom HaShoah commemorative online events and/or lessons, including a film about the Uprising, a graphic novel, a timeline of events in the Ghetto, and bios of Ghetto fighters.
Students can make their own daffodils at home, encourage their peers to do the same, and commemorate the event by wearing a daffodil they made and posting their picture on their social media accounts with the campaign hashtags:
