    Art Examines Holocaust Through Eyes of Those Who Gave Hope

    Walk into the multimedia exhibit, A Celebration of Life, at the Museum of Biblical Art in Dallas, and you are forced to brush history. Silkscreen panels depicted archive photos of children in death camps hang from the ceiling, forcing visitors to see them, touch them.

    "Just to make people, perhaps, think," said Houston-based artist Barbara Hines. "I want the children not to be forgotten. I want them to part of the memory."

    Hines' exhibit came to Dallas this week after a successful run at the Holocaust Museum in Houston. It focuses on people called "The Righteous Among the Nations," those who helped save Jewish people during the Holocaust.

    "There was a message of hope, of redemption," said Hines of her work. "Whatever people did to survive, they're here to tell their story."

    Domino's Pizza Launches Outdoor Delivery

    [DFW] Domino's Pizza Launches Outdoor Delivery

    Domino's Pizza is tweaking its home delivery service for those times you're not at home.
    After years of delivery right to your doorstep, Domino's drivers will now deliver to outdoor locations.
    That includes beaches, parks, landmarks, and other outdoor locations across the country.
    Domino's says its drivers will deliver to 150-thousand locations from the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, to the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign.
    The locations are now active and show up in the company's app or website as "Domino's Hotspots."
    Customers pre-pay for their orders, select a location, and your pizza is on the way.
    Previously, Domino's delivered to offbeat locations, but, the new service sets up designated drop off points.
    The service was tested last fall in Miami before being rolled out nationwide.

    Hines painted 20 of the 26,000 names listed among The Righteous Among the Nations. They are men and women from all different countries and faiths.

    "They're like the United Nations," Hines said, looking at the walls of the exhibit. "They were writing visas, forging documents," anything to help the Jewish people escape.

    "This is my dad," Hines said of the last portrait in the exhibit. "I included him because he's a survivor."

    Hines, who is Jewish, grew up not knowing her true heritage. She only found out the whole truth 15 years ago, after her own son decided he wanted to follow the Jewish faith.

    "My parents were both atheist," Hines said. "They hid their Jewish background. That's how they survived."

    Hines says the message depicted in her art is simple.

    [DFW] Canada Lawmakers Hold Moment of Silence

    Canadian lawmakers wore hockey jerseys on Monday to honor the victims and their families of that tragic bus crash in Canada that killed 16 people.
    The bus was carrying the junior league Humboldt hockey team to a game when a tractor-trailer slammed into the bus.
    Sixteen were killed and thirteen people were injured in the crash.
    Today's remembrance was one of a number of events that honored the team and their families.
    Earlier the lawmakers honored Rusty Staub, a major leaguer who played for the Montreal Expos and the New York Mets.

    "It means celebrating differences, really," Hines said. "No matter what city, what town you go to, there's always a stranger."

    "A Celebration of Survival" opened to the public Friday. The exhibit will run for at least the next 10 months.
