Join us for a screening of the 1995 HBO Film The Tuskegee Airmen starring Laurence Fishburne.

It is 1943 and the Germans are winning the Second World War as the U.S. suffers huge losses on the ground and in the air. Four newly recruited pilots are united by a desire to serve their country at time when black flyers are not welcomed in the Air Force. The men they call "The Tuskegee Airmen" must undertake the riskiest mission of their lives to prove to America that courage knows no color. Their success could earn them respect, save lives and help win a terrible war. Their failure could destroy more hopes and dreams than their own.

Speaker: Dr. Graham Cox | Topic: Jim Crow Laws and the Nuremberg Trials

Speaker: Dr. Graham Cox
Topic: Jim Crow Laws and the Nuremberg Trials
Thursday, September 28, 2017 | at the Museum, 6:30 p.m.

Join Dr. Graham Cox, Lecturer in the History Department at the University of North Texas, for a talk entitled "Seeking Justice for the Holocaust: Franklin D. Roosevelt, Herbert C. Pell, and the Limits of International Law."

This talk focuses on how the United States was able to seek justice abroad after World War II without addressing racial inequality at home.

Following World War II, the Allies had the responsibility of creating an international legal protocol to prosecute Nazi officials at Nuremberg. Dr. Cox will discuss how U.S. policymakers limited the scope of new international law seeking justice for the Holocaust to avoid creating precedents that might boomerang on the United States and its own policy of racial segregation. By linking “crimes against humanity” with “aggressive war” and “conspiracy” to protect American sovereignty against accusations about its own unequal social order, US policymakers simultaneously and hypocritically proclaimed the United States as the moral leader of the postwar new world order.

Free. RSVP required through Eventbrite.

An Evening with Dr. Seldin - Location Change

An Evening with Dr. Donald Seldin (Note: New Location)
Thursday, June 29, 2017 | At The Hockaday School
Nancy A. Nasher and David J. Haemisegger Family Center for the Arts
Location will change due to an overwhelming response to this talk. Please check back for details.
Join us for a conversation with Dr. Donald Seldin, William Buchanan Professor of Internal Medicine at UT Southwestern Medical Center, moderated by Dr. Michael Emmett, Chairman of the Department of Medicine at Baylor University Medical Center.

Dr. Seldin, widely known as the Father of Dallas Medicine, had an exceptional beginning in the medical field. In 1947, as a recent medical school graduate and captain in the U.S. Army, Seldin was summoned to Dachau, where he testified as an expert witness in the trial of Nazi doctor accused of causing the deaths of some 15 inmates following the performance of liver biopsies without sterilization or anesthesia. The court found the defendant guilty of murder and sentenced him to death.

Dr. Seldin credits this experience for his dedication to the practice of humane medicine, which he has passed on to all of his students. Soon after his return to the U.S., Seldin moved to Dallas and helped transform a sleepy medical school into the world-class institution UT Southwestern Medical School is today.

Free. RSVP required through Eventbrite.
*We haven't cancelled an event for the last 6 years. However, please note that in the case of an urgent need, all programs are subject to change without notice.

Lev Aronson Legacy Festival Performance

Lev Aronson Legacy Festival Performance
Thursday, June 15, 2017 | 1:00 p.m. | At the Museum

Join us for a special cello concert at the Dallas Holocaust Museum with music from Dr. Melissa Kraut, one of the leading cello instructors in the United States, and her students.

Lev Aronson's story could have been easily lost to history. Aronson was born in Germany but spent most of his youth in Latvia. The Nazi invasion of Riga in 1941 abruptly interrupted his study of the cello. Aronson spent four years in ghettos and concentration camps before he was liberated, but he lost 25 family members during the Holocaust, including his parents. After moving to the United States, Aronson spent almost 20 years with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra before teaching cello at Baylor University and SMU.

Free. Admission fees for Museum exhibits apply. No RSVP required.

Panel Discussion: The Refugee Camp Experience

The Refugee Camp Experience Panel Discussion will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the Museum. This discussion brings refugees together from several past and recent refugee situations. We present this panel discussion as an extension to our special exhibit, Rebirth After the Holocaust: Bergen-Belsen Displaced Persons Camp.This exhibit presents the metaphorphasis of Holocaust survivors into refugees taking the over the reins of their destinies.

Our partner for this event, the International Rescue Committee headed by Donna Duvin. With more than 25 years of experience leading disaster response and humanitarian organizations across the country, Donna Duvin serves as Executive Director for the Dallas office of the IRC.

Panelists:
A former refugee who was born in Omdurman (Khartoum), Sudan. Due to the civil war in Sudan, he fled to Egypt alone at the age of 16, then later to India.

A refugee in exile from Burundi. He spent his entire life growing up in many refugee camps after suffering through ongoing and raging civil wars.

A refugee born in Wasborn, Burma (now known as Myanmar). From the time he was eight, he would spend 22 years surviving in refugee camps within Thailand.

This refugee was an English teacher in Damascus, Syria when war broke out. In 2011, her husband was called upon to join the Syrian Army. To avoid conscription, Bothina and her family hid inside of Syria, hoping not to be found.

There is no cost to attend but you will need to RSVP to Eventbrite.

About the International Rescue Committee
Founded in 1933 at the urging of Albert Einstein, the International Rescue Committee was launched to assist those fleeing Nazi Germany. Today, with a presence in over 40 countries, the organization responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crisis. Each year, the International Rescue Committee also successfully resettles escaping refugees in 29 U.S. cities, including Dallas where the IRC works closely with other community partners to help those who’ve fled violence, torture, or persecution to rebuild their lives.
