Skokie Celebrates the Greatest Generation
When you mention the Museum of Jewish Heritage, many, many visitors comment on one of our past exhibitions. No matter how many times they have been to the Museum, viewing Ours to Fight For: American Jews in the Second World War remains a memorable, heartwarming experience for people of all ages and backgrounds.
Like proud parents, we’re thrilled that our “baby” is now out on its own in the world making us proud. After four years on the road with stops in Maryland, Louisiana, and Texas, the exhibition is now at the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center in Skokie, its final stop, where it will be on view through June 17.
To celebrate the occasion, and the excellent story in the Chicago Tribune, we’d like to share a few photos of Chicago area veterans and other distinguished guests from the opening of the exhibition.
