Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission
The mission of the Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission (THGC) is to promote awareness and enhance understanding of the Holocaust and other genocides in the world. Since its founding in 2009 by Senate Bill 482, the THGC has dedicated its resources, energy, and expertise to the education of teachers and students to better recognize and acknowledge the consequences of hatred, bigotry and apathy. This commission was created to reaffirm the commitment of the State of Texas and its citizens to choose right over wrong, good over evil, and through those choices to continue to fight the malevolent forces that would perpetrate genocides and make us question our own humanity. Through education and engagement, the THGC seeks to remind the public of its collective responsibility in not only preventing but ending, once and for all, this type of human cruelty.
