Virtual Tour and Discussion of the IL Holocaust Museum for Yom HaShoah

04/19/2020 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm CDT

April is Genocide Awareness & Prevention Month and Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day is April 21st.  Join us virtually on Sunday, April 19th at 12:30pm as we explore this complex history by examining many artifacts from the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center, guided by Mishkanite Gail Dallas (a docent at the museum) and R’ Lauren. We’ll consider the factors that gave rise to Nazi Germany and explore the myriad choices made by individuals, from complicity to courage, and see where we may find light in this dark history. Before the program: Please watch this 12 minute film from the closing exhibit of the museum that connects the lessons from the Holocaust with contemporary genocides around the world.
