Holocaust Museum Houston will be honoring Dr. Milton Boniuk with the 2020 Guardian of the Human Spirit Award on November 9th for his commitment to service and building an open-minded society. A longtime humanitarian, philanthropist, author and revered ophthalmologist, Dr. Boniuk bases much of his good works on a simple belief: Differences among individuals should be celebrated, not feared.

Join the Museum in celebrating Dr. Boniuk by making a tribute gift in his honor. Your donation of any size supports HMH’s mission to teach the lessons of the Holocaust, confront intolerance and pursue social justice.

Dr. Boniuk's dedication to an inclusive community includes the creation of Holocaust Museum Houston’s Boniuk Library and Boniuk Center for the Future of Holocaust, Human Rights and Genocide Studies; and Rice University’s The Boniuk Institute for the Study and Advancement of Religious Tolerance. From promoting tolerance, compassion and respect, to multiculturalism and diversity, his service to the community exemplifies what it means to be a Guardian of the Human Spirit.

Established in 1997, the Guardian of the Human Spirit Award is a platform for acknowledging dedicated individuals and institutions who have worked to enhance the lives of others and to better humankind.
