Holocaust Museum Houston presents Americans and the Holocaust with Dr. Daniel Greene
Northwestern University history professor Dr. Daniel Greene curated the exhibition, "Americans and the Holocaust," which opened earlier this year at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC. The exhibition dispels some of history's myths and misconceptions, including that Americans "knew nothing" about the threat of Nazism during the 1930s and '40s.
Greene will discuss the process of creating the exhibition, examine Americans' responses to Nazism and ask why rescue of Jews never became a priority for most Americans.
