On January 27, the Jewish Studies Student Association (JSSA) organized a group of students to attend the International Holocaust Rememberance Day event at the Holocaust Museum Houston, which was co-sponsored by the Program in Jewish Studies. It was JSSA’s first trip to the museum’s new space, and we got to witness a panel with the Consul Generals of Israel, Germany, and Japan, on the topic of diplomatic ethics. The second part of the program featured a one-woman play by the Israeli playwright Hadar Galron, “Whistle: My Mother Was Mengele’s Secretary.” It was informative and interesting and the group is looking forward to being able to attend more programs at the Holocaust Museum in the future.
