We have a new logo!

It’s part of the Museum’s recently refreshed brand identity, which is being implemented across all our Museum communications.
Our logo now more closely resembles a stylized bird in flight, reflecting the unmistakable silhouette of our roof-line.

The logo and the Museum's new tagline, "Take history to heart. Take a stand for humanity," embody the Museum’s mission to transform the future by learning from the past. Together, they underscore our urgent call to action for every individual to become an Upstander — to take a stand for what’s right and make a positive difference in the lives of others and the world at large.

Yesterday, the Museum honored Fernand and Emilie Deves during special plaque unveiling ceremony at the Museum’s Ferro Fountain of the Righteous, an outdoor space that pays tribute to the righteous few who chose to risk their life and stand up for those in peril.

Fernand and Emilie provided a safe home in France for two Jewish families during World War II. They sheltered four members of the Sapir family from Warsaw, and the Margolis sisters, Estera and Roza. Those sisters, Edith Adlam and Rose Abrams, now in their 90s were both present for the ceremony. The program included remarks from Honorable Vincent Floreani, Consul General of France in Chicago; and Renie Schreiber, Press Officer, Consulate General of Israel to the Midwest.

Hear Holocaust Survivor Aaron Elster's story of survival: 
 
"Illinois Holocaust Museum continues to find new stories to tell... and asks us to consider the cost of intolerance in our own lives. Every visit gives you something new to think about."

Chicago Reader has listed Illinois Holocaust Museum as one of the best small Museums in Chicago!

We are thrilled that visitors from all over Chicagoland agree that the Museum's world-class exhibitions, through various stories, teach lessons of tolerance that continue to be so relevant to contemporary issues taking place all over the world.
