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.
