Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center

It was the late 1970s, and neo-Nazis were threatening to march in Skokie. Chicago-area Survivors and their supporters, reacting to the situation, came together to create the Holocaust Memorial Foundation of Illinois. This initiative evolved into the Museum which was built to honor the memory of Holocaust victims; educate visitors; and combat prejudice, hatred, and indifference in local communities and throughout the world.

Customer Reviews

The museum is an extraordinary place. So important for people to learn and/or be reminded about this important part of history.

What an informative and inspirational place to visit! I learned so much of the history of the holocaust from the docent and how she connected people directly involved to current times.
Pamela D. · October 30, 2016
A visitor must take their time to appreciate the museum. To get the most out the events one must read and ponder the exhibits, the paintings, and the message of the museum. I thoroughly enjoyed the place. It was solum, peaceful, and enlightening.
