The trip will include a three-hour guided tour of the Zev and Shifra Karkomi Holocaust Exhibition where you’ll experience pre-war European life, ghettos and concentration camps, liberation and resettlement around the world through more than 500 artifacts, documents and photographs. It has a special focus on post-war life in Skokie, Illinois, which had the largest per capita population of Holocaust survivors outside of Israel, and sparked the Museum’s eventual creation. The exhibition concludes with a film that connects the lessons of the Holocaust with other genocides around the world. Tour guides will provide context, understanding and clarity, and survivor stories woven throughout the exhibition make the experience both powerful and personal.
