Holocaust Museum Houston presents "In the Country of Numbers, where the Men have no Names" Exhibit Preview
Holocaust Museum Houston will present the opening reception of "In the Country of Numbers, where the Men have no Names." The exhibit tells the story of 6,000 Jewish men, most from Berlin, who were imprisoned in Sachsenhausen following the November Pogrom Night known as Kristallnacht. November 9, 2018 marks the 80th anniversary of the Pogrom Night in 1938 when Nazis went through the streets of Germany and set synagogues on fire, smashed the window fronts of Jewish businesses, attacked Jewish people and vandalized their apartments.
Professor Jason W. Levy will give remarks at 6:30 pm. Levy is the grandson of Julius Nathan, a survivor of the November Pogrom and Sachsenhausen, whose oral testimony is featured in the exhibit.
