Guardian of the Human Spirit Luncheon

Each year, Holocaust Museum Houston recognizes a prominent communitarian with the Guardian of the Human Spirit Award. The award was established in 1997 as a platform for acknowledging both individuals and organizations that have demonstrated a true commitment to service and have reached beyond themselves to build an open-minded society for the enrichment of the local community.

This year, Holocaust Museum Houston will honor the Texas A&M University Corps of Cadets and the Aggie Liberators of WWII (which includes our building’s namesake, A.I. Schepps ’32). The Museum will welcome keynote speaker Dr. Robert M. Gates, former U.S. Secretary of Defense and former President, Texas A&M University. Nancy and Arthur Brand, Sam and Barney Gershen and Lorraine and Ed Wulfe will co-chair the event.

Tables from $2,500; tickets from $250.  Click here to purchase tickets.

In addition, Holocaust Museum Houston is displaying the exhibit “The Texas Liberator: Witness to the Holocaust”, which tells the story of 24 U.S. soldiers who liberated the concentration camps in Europe at the end of World War II.  The exhibit will be on display until October 28, 2018.  Visit Holocaust Museum Houston for more information.
