The first Precinct 3 bus day-trip of 2020 for senior citizens will be an outing to the Holocaust Museum Houston.
January 27, 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi concentration and death camp in World War II. In 2005, the United Nations General Assembly designated January 27 as International Holocaust Remembrance Day to honor the victims of the Holocaust. On this important day, a visit to the Holocaust Museum Houston seems appropriate. The museum, located in the Museum District, is the fourth largest holocaust museum in the U.S. It opened in 1996. In June, 2019, the museum underwent a $34 million expansion that moved it to a new location and doubled its size. Holocaust Museum Houston is dedicated to remembering the 6 million Jews and other innocent victims of the Holocaust and honoring the legacy of the survivors. Even if you pride yourself on your knowledge of WWII events, you will no doubt come away learning a lot more. This is a must-see cultural experience.
The outing will include a visit to Treebeard’s in the Cloisters for lunch (on your own) followed by a docent-led tour of the Holocaust Museum. The details are shown below.
