Survivor Profiles

Each Survivor of the Holocaust has a unique story – these stories often include suffering, kindness, luck, and more. This page highlights Chicagoland Survivors and gives web visitors the chance to explore the range of Holocaust Survivor experiences – one story at a time.

My fear today is that people will forget the Holocaust.

Sam Harris, Holocaust Survivor & Museum President Emeritus
