The Wharton Club of Chicago invites you for a night of remembrance and "taking a stand for humanity" at the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center on Thursday, March 16.

Please call the office for late reservations: 847-256-5800

The evening will begin with heavy hors d'oeuvres and beverages and will then feature a talk by the museum's CEO, Susan Abrams, a Wharton alum. Ms. Abrams will discuss her career transition from the private sector into nonprofit leadership and the Holocaust Museum's modern-day social advocacy around the world.

After the talk, attendees will get a sneak peek of the museum's groundbreaking 3D Interactive Survivor Experience, where attendees can engage in conversation with strikingly life-like images of actual Holocaust Survivors. You will be encouraged to ask questions and hear the answers and stories in the Survivor’s own voice. The evening will conclude with docent guided tours of the Museum and the new exhibition Operation Finale: The Capture and Trial of Adolf Eichmann. 

Beverages, hors d'oeuvres, and running tours of the museum will be available all evening.
