Social Science and Religion Students Visit Dallas Holocaust Museum

On April 19, in commemoration of Genocide Awareness Month, the Department of Social Sciences and Religion sponsored its second-annual day-trip to the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum (DHHRM).  Twenty students and four faculty from the department boarded the Trinity Railway Express in Downtown Fort Worth, bound for the Union Station in Dallas.  

Students experienced a docent-led tour of the museum, which directs visitors to consider not just the history of the Nazi Holocaust against Jewish people, but also acts of genocide in general and the importance of global human rights today.

Texas Wesleyan students also viewed the Walk This Way special exhibition at the DHHRM.  This exhibition of over 100 pairs of shoes spanning 200 years uses footwear to tell stories around women’s labor activism, the fight for suffrage, and the sexual revolution. It is a fascinating pathway to uncovering the vital role women have played in history.

For more information about such opportunities, please visit the School of Arts and Sciences.
