Our educational initiatives, exhibitions, public programming and conservation efforts allow us to preserve the memory of the Holocaust and honor those who were lost.

Collection and Conservation: The Museum is committed to preserving and protecting the over 20,000 artifacts held in trust for our community’s Survivors, as well as the international works of art included in our Legacy of Absence Gallery. And while our Legacy Gallery features renowned artists such as Nutchi, Salomon, and Bak, both gaps in the collection and requisite of rotating artwork generate the need to increase and improve the Gallery’s holdings. The Museum looks to its major donors to help maintain the high quality of the collection by making monetary gifts for the acquisition and conservation of art.
Education: The Museum’s education programming for students, school groups, educators, and law enforcement are made possible at low or no cost through the generosity of our donors. Designating gifts to support specific programs, such as Teaching Trunks, Teacher Professional Development, and Opportunity Scholarships – subsidizing field trips for schools in need, help further the Museum’s mission. Also, contributions to the Mayor Richard M. and Maggie C. Daley Education Fund helps facilitate outreach to Chicago Public School students and schoolchildren across the Midwest, and supports programming enabling them to visit the Museum, learn the universal lessons of the Holocaust, and become empowered to stand up for others.
Exhibitions: The Museum hosts three to four special temporary exhibitions annually, providing a dynamic forum for exploring central themes related to the Holocaust and genocide. Major donors and corporate sponsorships have helped the Museum host more than a dozen special exhibitions since its opening in 2009.
Public Programs: The Museum hosts a wide array of films, discussions, lectures, concerts and family programs to probe more deeply into aspects of civil rights, human rights, tolerance and history. Contributions make it possible to offer these exciting programs at low or no cost to the general public.
