The Holocaust in The Soviet Union

Ongoing Exhibit

Illinois Holocaust Museum has created a first-of-its-kind online experience sharing the little-known history of the Holocaust in the Soviet Union as told through the stories of Chicago-area Survivors and their families.

This new website beautifully presents the Museum’s full photography and object collection connected to the Holocaust in the Soviet Union, sharing individual stories from Chicagoland Survivors and rescuers. There is also a section of the website with secondary school classroom resources and activities.

The Holocaust in The Soviet Union Online Exhibition is made possible through the generous support of Tanya and Michael Polsky, Claims Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, and Julie Bashkin and Matt Brody.
