Young Professional Committee
What are you doing today to make a difference tomorrow?
The Young Professional Committee is a group of young adults from across the Chicagoland area, dedicated to raising funds and awareness for Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center through fundraising and friend-raising programs in collaboration with the Development Department and Museum Board of Directors liaisons.
At Illinois Holocaust Museum, we honor the memory of all who were killed during the Holocaust by teaching universal lessons that combat hatred, prejudice, and indifference, and inspiring visitors to become Upstanders, as opposed to bystanders, who speak out for what’s right – turning powerful lessons of history into positive actions today. The Museum activates this mission through cutting-edge exhibitions and innovative public programming that brings scholars, activists and artists together with the community to discuss how to improve our world.
For more information on how to get involved with the Young Professional Committee, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 847.967.4850.

With this new technology, the in-person conversation exists.
The impact of Pinchas’ story can reach beyond the places he has visited himself.

Posted by Patricia Doyle | Young Professional Committee Member, Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center
When I looked around the large Hyatt Regency Chicago dining room filled with close to 2,000 of Chicago’s foremost business, civic and community leaders, I felt a sense of pride that I was part of a community that is supporting an extremely relevant and important cause.

Posted by Michael Bregman | Young Professional Committee Co-Chair, Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center
The best way for me to ensure that my son grows up in a world where nothing even resembling the Holocaust is possible is to teach future generations to recognize bigotry and intolerance and to confront it.
