Houston to March in Remembrance of the Holocaust


Houston, TX (PRWEB) March 27, 2015

In preparation for the 2015 March of Remembrance Houston on April 18th and 19th, Pastor Jobst Bittner, founder of the March of Life in Tübingen, Germany, recently shared about the history and vision of the March at several locations across the Greater Houston Area, including the Houston Holocaust Museum, Texas A&M University Galveston Campus, and the Houston Area Pastors’ Council. Those coming to hear Bittner speak included Holocaust survivors and their descendants, as well as Daniel Agranov, Deputy Consul General of Israel to the Southwest United States.

“Darkness and silence always go together,” said Bittner, and in the current climate of increasing anti-Semitism, the March of Remembrance provides an avenue for people to arise from silence and indifference to stand as a light in the face of oppression. This year, marches will be held in over 50 cities across the U.S., and in more than 30 cities in Germany, on Saturday, April 18th and Sunday, April 19th. Statewide event locations and details can be found at http://www.marchofremembrance.org.

Bittner’s book, “Breaking the Veil of Silence”, discusses the roots of anti-Semitism over the years and describes his own experiences with the initial unwillingness of many in Europe to confront their past. It also charts the creation of the March of Life and March of Remembrance, which recently received an award at the Knesset in Israel, and describes how those that choose to remain silent while their fellow humans are oppressed become perpetrators themselves.

Jobst Bittner was born in 1956 to parents who were Nazi party members during the war, his father having fought in both France and North Africa. Growing up, neither of his parents talked about the Holocaust, believing they had not part in the mass murder of 6 million Jews. Bittner later learned that this attitude was common throughout much of Europe; many people did not talk even with their families about the Holocaust.

Like Bittner, many children born to Nazi families after the war did not know the extent of their families’ involvement until much later in life. The true extent of this ‘veil of silence’ became clear to him when he and his wife studied at Tübingen University in the 1980s. To his surprise, many people there were ignoring the fact that the Holocaust had been perpetrated in camps just miles from the city.

As the city and the university began digging through the past, and as more perpetrators began to open up about the things that happened during the war, the later generations finally began to learn about their families’ involvement in the Holocaust.

As a counselor at his church, Bittner heard the stories of children and grandchildren of Nazis that were trying to cope with these hard truths that had been uncovered. He then created the March of Life to break the silence that has plagued Europe since World War II.

In an attempt to find healing for those struggling with the past, and to find the words that their fathers and grandfathers could not find, Bittner planned a march along the same roads where Hitler had forced Jews to march in what are now known as death marches. However, the March of Life would walk in the reverse direction of the marches, back to their camps of origin.

As Bittner was organizing the first March of Life in 2007, he was contacted by Jewish friends and survivors that wanted to participate. The march grew, and many survivors returned to these roads for the first time since liberation. Children and grandchildren of perpetrators of the Holocaust were able to ask victims for forgiveness and make an attempt at finding peace with their families’ pasts. They had broken the veil of silence and opened the door to reconciliation.

Although Bittner first thought this would be the only march, it became apparent that anti-Semitic feelings were widespread, and veils of silence needed to be broken in other locations too. The second march was held in 2008 in eastern Germany and was in the shape of a Star of David. Over the next few years, other cities in other countries such as Poland, Ukraine, and Austria expressed interest in having marches. A few years after this, marches had also begun in the United States.

This year there will be 30 marches throughout Europe, and 56 in the United States. The only way the atrocities of the Holocaust were able to take place was because millions stayed silent when confronted with the oppression and deportation of their neighbors. You can join the survivors, liberators, 2nd and 3rd generation survivors and others on one or more of these marches to honor those lost, educate the living, provide healing to those affected by the Holocaust, and vow never to stay silent in the face of evil.

About the March of Remembrance

The March of Remembrance is a sister to the March of Life in Europe, which was started in 2007 by Pastor Jobst Bittner, TOS Ministry, of Tubingen Germany. Marches are held in over 50 US cities, and internationally, on Yom Hashoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) to remember the atrocities of the Holocaust and stand in solidarity with the Jewish community in saying Never Again.

The March provides an opportunity to honor Holocaust survivors and let their stories be told; educate a generation that is many times unaware of the reality of the horrors of the Holocaust; remember not only those who were lost in the Holocaust, but those who fought for freedom; and engage the issues of anti-Semitism and social justice.

2015 March of Remembrance Dates and Locations:

Saturday, April 18th, 2015:

Brenham, Baytown and Kingwood (the March in Kingwood will conclude at the Holocaust Garden of Remembrance at Kings Harbor Waterfront Village near the restaurants, where there will be a short dedication of the garden and a Celebration of Life event, with a book signing by our survivors, fellowship and lovely restaurants to enjoy).

Discover Houston Tours Introduces Around Downtown Holiday Tours


Houston, TX (PRWEB) November 13, 2014

Magically, the Monday after Thanksgiving, Santa Claus, his reindeer and holiday decorations will appear inside and outside downtown Houston office buildings. Earlier in November, workers test little white lights on oak trees in Hermann Square Park in preparation for the Mayor’s Holiday Celebration and Tree Lighting on Friday, Dec. 5.

During this special season in November and December, celebrate the holidays with an Around Downtown Holiday Tour offered by Discover Houston Tours on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from noon-3:30 p.m. Advance, paid reservations are required, and tour groups are limited to 14 people. The price is $ 30 per person.

Those on the tour will be able to shop at the Visitors Center in City Hall, at Forever 21 and the House of Blues in GreenStreet, and at The Shops at Houston Center. There will also be time for an optional, Dutch-treat snack at The Shops at Houston Center, Phoenicia Specialty Foods or The Lake House at Discovery Green.

These guided walking tours begin at noon inside the Visitors Center at City Hall, where there will be a 10-minute video about Houston. The tour guide will share some basic facts about the nation’s fourth-largest city, then lead visitors outside for photo ops of Houston’s famous high-rise skyline and the city’s Holiday Tree, a tradition dating back to 1919.

Hop aboard the free Greenlink Connector and ride around downtown looking at holiday decorations. Exit at GreenStreet and walk through their three blocks of shopping, dining and entertainment, with stops inside Forever 21 and the House of Blues.

Continue with the guide inside the Four Seasons Hotel, and learn how the hotel is connected to 79 other buildings via the Downtown Houston Tunnel System. Walk over a sky bridge and enter The Shops at Houston Center, full of tempting gifts and 28 delicious places to eat.

After a rest stop, exit Houston Center and learn about the international delights at Phoenicia’s Specialty Foods and the amenities at One Park Place, a 30-story luxury apartment house. Enter Discovery Green’s 12-acre park and enjoy photo ops at “Wings of the City,” an exhibition of nine bronze sculptures by famed Mexican artist Jorge Marín, an allee of oak trees adjoining The Grove restaurant, Jim Dine’s “The House (Heart),” Doug Hollis’s “Listening Vessels,” and Jean Dubuffet’s “Monument au Fantome.” Enjoy an optional, Dutch-treat snack and beverage at The Lake House while watching the Dancing Waters and skaters on the ICE before re-boarding the Greenlink Connector and returning to the city’s Holiday Tree.

The New Houston – From Green Energy to Web Hosting – Houston Is on a Roll!

Bike Share kiosks in downtown. Electric vehicle charging stations at the grocery store. Over 15 miles of new rail lines being constructed. Wind turbines and solar on rooftops. Solar-powered mini-offices at schools and parks. E-cycling and polystyrene foam recycling. Urban gardens surrounding office buildings. LEED-certified historic buildings. Complete Streets in urban neighborhoods. Accessible and recreation-oriented bayous.

What City is this you ask? Houston, and not only is Houston going green, this great city has become a technology mecca with many web hosting firms developing strong relationships in the city.

Look at the testimonials of a company closely, especially those featured on their site. Many web hosting companies offer cheap plans on their site, but there are few that are located in the great state of Texas, and even fewer with a long history in the City of Houston.

For some companies, this may be easy to spot, for others it may be more difficult. In either case, do not take web hosting companies at face value. Get reviews from independent message boards not affiliated with the web hosting company, then choose a host with a strong foundation in Houston.

The New Houston.

When looking for a web hosting provider, a good indicator of a professional firm is a regularly updated blog on the provider’s website. Although it may be overlooked, a blog indicates that the provider is willing to maintain communication, whether it’s about server issues, upgrades, or new features that are on the way. Also look for professional responses to comments left for the provider by other users.

Innovation, creativity and a black gold rush spirit dominated industrial Houston at the turn of the last century – putting Houston on the map as an economic leader.

Don’t choose your web hosting provider based solely on price. Although using a cheap or free web host may save you money in the short run, these hosts might not offer the disk space or bandwidth you need. Price should be only one factor in your final decision so that you ensure that you get what you most need.

Today, Houston is at an historic juncture. Decision-drivers for the city and the region are no longer only economic. There is an emerging recognition that the city has the building blocks to be one of the most livable, equitable and sustainable places in the nation, and lead the next revolution: the green revolution.

If you are going to obtain a shared web hosting solution, conduct some research on the websites that you will be sharing your server with. You should definitely avoid sharing servers with websites that participate in spam due to the fact that if any of these websites receive an IP address ban from search engines or internet service providers, your website will be banned along with them. Adult websites in particular tend to participate in these kinds of activities.

What are these building blocks? Recently, Forbes Magazine placed Houston as the number one city for young professionals. And young professionals drive innovation and use new thinking to solve old issues. Houston has a business-friendly environment and a plethora of large companies conducting business in new ways. Houston has high average incomes and a concentration of graduates from elite colleges from across the country. Also, for the first time in thirty years, the Kinder Houston Area Study revealed a significant increase in the number of residents who support mass transit and prefer a less automobile-dependent, more urbanized lifestyle. And Mayor Annise Parker’s forward-thinking and innovative approaches and initiatives are putting Houston on the map as a national green leader.

Avoid free web hosting services. These services support themselves by placing advertisements on the top of all the websites they host. These advertisements may annoy your visitors or make your site appear unprofessional. In addition, some free hosts may restrict the amount of commercial content allowed on the websites that they host.

What’s most exciting about Houston is that few people think it will lead the green revolution. But this sleeping giant is starting to awaken. Houstonians love a good challenge and love to save money.

You can almost always save money on your web hosting by paying in advance. Discounts for multi-month and yearly packages are common. However, you don’t want to lock in with an unreliable host. Try out a new host for a month or two before you lock in a long-term commitment, and check out the cancellation and refund policy beforehand.

At the turn of the last century, rich resources made Houston a national economic leader. At the turn of this century, rich resources will do the same. Texas has, by far, the largest installed wind power capacity of any U.S. state. The City of Houston capitalized on this and has been recognized by the EPA as the number one municipal purchaser of green power and the seventh largest overall purchaser in the nation.

Don’t be afraid to change your web host if they are not providing you with the services that you need. There are currently thousands of web hosting providers in the market. So, if your current web host is giving you shoddy service and charging you extortionate monthly fees, it is in your best interest to change your web hosting provider today!

The City has a robust partnership with the University of Houston’s College of Architecture’s Green Building Components Program. Their innovative faculty has designed the first movable solar powered office/generator, and the City, through a grant, has purchased 17 of these units for emergency preparedness and other uses. Houston also recently received two large grants to reduce the cost of solar for residents and test out new types of rooftop solar technology.

Since there are so many web hosting companies to choose from, it can be difficult to ascertain which web hosting provider is the best one for your business. One of the key qualities you need to look for in a web hosting company is whether they have enough resources available to provide its users with reliability and stability. You don’t want to get involved with company that has more website customers than their servers and staff can handle.

Houston does not only create cleaner ways to use energy, Houston actually uses less energy. The City knows about energy efficiency: over 80 City facilities are expected to achieve guaranteed energy use reductions of 30% with paybacks of, on average, less than ten years.

If you want to run an online business, you should know that your web hosting service is going to represent your main investment. Even if this service seems costly in comparison to the other expenses related to your business, keep in mind that the success of your site will greatly depend on a good host.

The City also wants energy efficiency to be part of the urban fabric of Houston. Through our Residential Energy Efficiency Program (REEP), led by the General Services Department, the City has helped 13k Houston residents weatherize their homes, resulting in 12-20% kWh reduction and $ 60-125 savings each month. On the commercial side, the award-winning Houston Green Office Challenge and the City’s partnership in the DOE’s Better Buildings Challenge are encouraging building owners and property managers to find innovative measures to reduce their energy and water consumption and decrease waste.

The minute you start seeing things that you don’t like with your web hosting company, you should be gin looking at other options. This does not necessarily mean you are going to switch right then, but in case you need to, you will definitely be well-prepared and ready to move on.

We also know that equally important to encouraging high performing buildings is looking at our codes. In January 2012, the City, with leadership from the Public Works and Engineering Department, set the bar high by adopting the Houston Residential Energy Code. This code makes Houston’s standards 5% above the state code for residential energy efficiency standards, and also requires all new residential buildings to be solar ready. And Houston is poised to adopt another 5% increase above state code this year.

When looking at prices for web hosting, make sure you are looking at packages that correspond to e-commerce websites. If you want to use your site to sell products, you will need a host that supports certain features such as databases or shopping carts, perhaps at an extra costs not included in basic packages.

It’s not just about energy efficiency. Houston also embraces green buildings. Currently Houston is number four in the nation in the number of LEED certified buildings with 186 certified projects. That’s up from #7 just a year ago.

Carefully investigate the customer service capabilities and reputation of a web hosting company before singing up. You should have 24/7 access to customer service, including technical support for example if you are looking to transfer a data base or experience down time. Look for online and always available customer service to meet all of your web hosting needs.

One of the most impressive pieces of the green revolution is the emphasis on public transportation and new transportation technologies. Under the leadership of METRO, Houston will soon have three new rail lines, adding over 15 miles to the system.

Establish how much you can afford to spend on web hosting. You can get discounts if you subscribe to web hosting for a while year instead of paying a monthly fee. Perhaps you should start with a monthly subscription to see if the host you have chosen is reliable and switch to a yearly plan later.

Houston is at the forefront of the electric car movement. Houston was one of the first cities to receive EV cars for a City fleet, which now includes 40 Nissan Leafs and plug-in hybrids. And
