July 18 – 22, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM.
On its tour across the state with the purpose of encouraging tolerance and ending hate, the Mobile Museum of Tolerance, an initiative of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, will stop at Eisenhower during the week of July 18th-22nd.
Inside the museum on wheels, visitors will learn lessons from the past designed to address current day issues.
“There’s a lot of concerns about what’s happening today and how it’s mirroring the past, and we can’t allow that to continue,” said Alison Pure-Slovin, Midwest region director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, told ABC 7.
During it’s stay at Eisenhower, the museum’s focus will be on how ordinary citizens stood up against oppression in Nazi Germany and how people today can take an active role in preventing hate and promoting tolerance.
