Hate Ends Now: The Cattle Car Exhibit
On February 12 & 13, the museum will host the traveling exhibit Hate Ends Now: The Cattle Car Exhibit. Presented by the Jewish Community Center of Corpus Christi; Texas Holocaust, Genocide, and Antisemitism Commission; Texas Historical Commission; Holocaust Memorial Museum of San Antonio; and Lubetzky Family Foundation, the Cattle Car is an immersive, 360-degree exhibit within a replica WWII cattle car—the same type of rail car Hitler’s troops used to transport Jews to concentration camps. The cattle car focuses on the horrors of the Holocaust and reminds us that whether it’s expressed as genocide, bigotry, homophobia, or sexism, hate persists even today around the world. The cattle car reminds us to learn from the past, work together to heal the present, and do what we can end hate now. Civil society depends on it. Tours are limited to 30 minutes in length and are limited to 20 persons per tour. Group tours can be booked by reserving 20 tickets. Secure your free ticket to the exhibit through the Holocaust Memorial Museum of San Antonio’s website: hmmsa.org/hate-ends-now, if visiting the museum, a separate ticket must be purchased.
This unique 360-degree video exhibit brings history to life, teaching visitors about the devastating consequences of intolerance, bigotry, and hate and will only be in Corpus Christi for TWO DAYS! The exhibit is an immersive, multimedia presentation that takes place inside an exact replica of a cattle car used to transport Jews and other targeted groups to concentration camps during World War II. Students and visitors will engage with history through video and audio remembering the Holocaust and featuring survivors’ testimonials.
