Chicago Next Generation Associate Board Event

One in five American millennials polled last year hadn’t heard of or were not sure whether they had heard of the Holocaust. Why are so many in the next generation unfamiliar with the history? As millennials enter professional and leadership roles that influence society, the lessons from the Holocaust can help them safeguard our democratic freedoms.

For the last 20 years, the Museum has educated law enforcement, members of the military, judges, and select government officials on the role of their historical counterparts during the Holocaust. The training prompts critical thinking about roles and responsibilities today. Join Chicago’s young professionals for a special talk with the Museum’s head of professional leadership programs to discuss the evolution of this work in today’s world.
