Howdy! In honor of Holocaust Remembrance Day this month, you can check out the exhibit, “Beyond Duty: Diplomats Recognized as Righteous Among the Nations,” in the lobby of the Academic building. The exhibition honors the righteous diplomats who risked their lives and the safety of their families to rescue hundreds of Jews during the Holocaust. The exhibition will be displayed at the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Jerusalem and at seventy Israeli missions around the world in twenty different languages.
Additionally, the Department of International Studies and the Consulate General of Israel will be screening Big Sonia on Tuesday, January 29 from 7:00-8:30pm in Geren Auditorium (Langford Architecture Ctr, Building B). The screening will be accompanied by a conversation with Kelly Zuniga, CEO of the Houston Holocaust Museum, and a photo exhibition, “Beyond Duty: Diplomats Recognized as Righteous Among the Nations”. The event is open to the public, and we encourage you to attend. We look forward to seeing you there!
