"The Glass House Exhibition" Lecture with Agnes Hirschi


Cultural Bridges, an outreach program of Holocaust Museum Houston, and the Consulate of Switzerland will present an evening with Agnes Hirschi, daughter of Carl Lutz, the Swiss vice-consul in Budapest, Hungary from 1942 until the end of World War II.

Hirschi will speak about her father, who is credited with rescuing tens of thousands of Hungarian Jews from deportation to Nazi death camps by sheltering them in safe houses throughout the city and issuing exit visas. The most famous of the 76 safe houses, a former glass factory that become known as "the Glass House," sheltered 3,000 Jews. The "Glass House Exhibition" tells its story.

Registration is required.
