At this difficult time for our nation—a time for reflection and action— members of the Chicago community supporting the efforts of the D.C.-based U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) will come together virtually on September 15.
The COVID-19 pandemic rapidly changed much of how the USHMM does its work, but not why we do it. On 9/15/20 the Chicago community will renew its pledge to ensure that the critical lessons of the Holocaust—lessons about the fragility of freedom, the nature of hate, and the consequences of indifference—help shape our nation’s way forward. The annual ‘What You Do Matters’ Risa K. Lambert event—which historically attracts up to 2,500 Chicagoans in-person, including hundreds of Holocaust survivors—will feature special guests, inspiring stories, and important messages about the Museum’s role in these challenging times.
