Holocaust Museum & Lunch at Maggiano’s

Thursday, February 23, 2017

 

The Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center in Skokie, Illinois, is a place where those familiar with the Holocaust and those learning about it for the first time can experience pre-war European life, ghettos, concentration camps, liberation and resettlement. More than 500 artifacts, documents, photographs, and a German rail car of the type used in Nazi deportations are on display. The museum also has a special focus on post-war life in Skokie, Illinois, which had the largest per capita population of Holocaust survivors outside of Israel. We will also have the opportunity to experience history through testimony given to us by a member of the Museum Speaker’s Bureau, a Holocaust survivor. A visit to this incredible Museum makes for a very powerful and personal experience.

Before we tour the museum, we will enjoy a delicious lunch at Maggiano’s in Skokie. If you LOVE Italian food you will not be disappointed! The family style meal includes Bruschetta, Maggiano’s Salad, Rigatoni and Meat Sauce, and Chicken Piccata, followed by Vera’s famous Lemon Cookies! This scrumptious meal includes Ciabatta Rolls, Coffee, Tea, and Soda.
