New WWII Veterans Exhibit at the Illinois Holocaust Museum

The Illinois Holocaust Museum in Skokie is announcing a new exhibit to be hosted this spring.  Ours to Fight For: American Jews in the Second World War is a travelling exhibit of artifacts and photographs prepared and circulated around the country by the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York. 

As part of the exhibit, the Illinois Holocaust Museum is preparing a "Wall of Honor" of Midwestern WWII Jewish Veterans.  All WWII Post 29 members are encouraged to get in touch with the Museum and add their photographs to this project, which will become a permanent part of the Museum.  The travelling exhibit will be at the Museum from mid-February to mid-June.  

The flyer about the "Wall of Honor" and the exhibit can be seen by clicking on the link below.
