More on Kessler and the Texas Holohoax Circuit from plantation14:


Paul Kessler's haunting grounds include the powerful "holocaust educational museums" in Texas, with centers in Dallas, Houston and El Paso. The University of Texas at Dallas hosts numerous seminars for hundreds of high school teachers who listen to "holocaust experts" from the mother institution (the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum), other teachers who have taught about the holocaust, and holocaust survivors like busy Paul Kessler. He might sound silly, unbelievable and stupid, but he knows the holocaust game well.

The Dallas Holocaust Museum isn't just for Texas. It is very also concerned about issues like Iran... and the fact that a Ukrainian university granted "American neo-Nazi" David Duke an honorary doctorate. "Countering those kinds of lies is one purpose of Holocaust education centers, their leaders say. They face a particular challenge getting their information into a country like Iran, where the media are government-controlled."

The idea for a Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education & Tolerance began in 1977 and came from 200 Dallas holocaust Survivors. They established the Dallas Memorial Center for Holocaust Studies in 1984 and in 2005, changed its name to the Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education & Tolerance, and moved to downtown Dallas.

The Holocaust Museum of Houston was opened in 1996 and is the fourth largest holocaust memorial museum in the US. "A major commitment of the Holocaust Museum Houston is the educational program." This program comprises teacher training and student programs. It also offers contests for students, such as the annual “Yom HaShoah Art and Writing Contest”. [

The $2 million dollar El Paso Holocaust Museum had help from the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC. The main goal of the Museum is “to teach young people today about what happens when bigotry and racism are allowed to flourish.” It began in 1984 by giving frequent tours for schools, tourists and for U.S. and German army trainees. It is the brainstorm of Henry Kellen, a survivor, who escaped from a camp in Lithuania and was hidden by a farmer, along with six others, under the floorboards of a house for three months before the liberation. "He, like many other survivors, kept quiet about what he had seen and endured. But, in the early 1980’s, something happened that made him rethink his silence. It was the growing and organized movement of Holocaust deniers in America and Europe that spread propaganda on the internet, in written papers and speeches. He felt he must speak out against these lies". [

  2. Nothing about any of these museums is a joke
    Henry Kellen and The El Paso Holocaust Museum deserves more than comments like the above
