Texas Holocaust and Genocides Bill Signed
Susan, Mary Lee, Cynthia and Elly share this good news:
We are happy to report that on June 19, 2009, Governor Perry signed SB 482, which creates the Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission. The legislation takes effect on September 1, 2009; information about the legislation can be found at
Thanks to each of you who wrote to your legislator, testified at the hearings, and contacted other individuals and groups to raise awareness about the need for this commission. Together, we have ensured that future generations learn about the Holocaust and other genocides. We especially wish to express our deep appreciation to the bill’s sponsors in the Texas legislature who guided us through the process and showed their commitment to the education and commemoration of these events.
With warm regards,
Susan, Mary Lee and Cynthia
Cynthia Capers, Associate Director of Education, Holocaust Museum Houston

III ANNUAL REFLECTIONS ON HOLOCAUST & GENOCIDES
SUNDAY, JANUARY 24, 2010 - 5:00 PM - 7:30 PM
From Mike Ghouse,
Signing of the Senate Bill 482 is indeed a good step in the right direction.
I will be calling on a meeting in mid to late July to plan on the 3rd Annual reflections on Holocaust and Genocides to be held on Sunday, January 24, 2010. We would certainly want to invite the Governor and the Senators who have made this possible. I will prepare a letter of appreciation and together we can sign and send to the Governor and the Senators.
As individuals and organizations, we want to invite every one to do their share in preventing the atrocities against other humans.

Silent no more, speak up.
