United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s 20th anniversary
As you might know, we are honoring the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s 20th anniversary. In honor of this special anniversary, we have been hosting a National Tribute and Tours to honor Holocaust survivors and World War II veterans. We have held events in Boca Raton, Los Angeles, New York, Washington, DC, and our last tour is in Chicago.
On Sunday, June 9, 2013 the Museum’s 20th Anniversary National Tour will be in Chicago, at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers (301 East North Water Street, Chicago, IL 60611), from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
At this free, daylong event, Museum educators and scholars will join historians and journalists in discussing the continuing relevance of this history and its meaning for us today. In addition to thought-provoking programming, Museum researchers will be on hand to help survivors and their families find information in the Museum's archives, and curators will help those seeking to donate or preserve Holocaust-era artifacts. The day begins with a moving tribute to local Holocaust survivors and World War II veterans at 11:00 a.m., as the Museum honors their courage and sacrifice.
All the events are free to attend; however, advance registration is required. As an important member of the community, we wanted to be sure you and your members are aware of this upcoming event and see how we could best share information with them. To register, please visit our website, www.ushmm.org/neveragain or call 1-866-99USHMM (1-866-998-7466).
The day will close with a performance of Annelies, the choral setting of the Diary of Anne Frank, at the Harris Theater for Music and Dance. This program begins at 6:00 p.m. and is made possible by Mesirow Financial. To register for the Annelies concert, call 312.334.7777 and use the promo code USHMM.Mr. Jaime J.
