Those in Chicago who were instrumental in building the Museum to remember and honor the victims of the Holocaust are passing the torch. It is up to the next generation to ensure the Museum continues to grow and respond to today’s moral challenges.

The Chicago Next Generation hopes to inspire those in their 20s, 30s, and 40s to support the Museum’s work and to become activists for those who need a voice. Contact the Midwest regional office for information on how to join.
