Where the Children Sleep
  • Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center proudly presents Where the Children Sleep, a provocative multi-media exhibit featuring powerful photos and film of Syrian refugee children in Europe and the Middle East by award-winning Swedish photojournalist Magnus Wennman. Where the Children Sleep serves as a wake-up call; not only documenting a contemporary human rights crisis but also inviting visitors to take a stand for children’s rights. The exhibition has its Chicago debut at the Illinois Holocaust Museum, 9603 Woods Drive in Skokie, IL, from Thursday, March 15 – September 16, 2018.

    Using the powerful photography of sleeping Syrian children in Lebanon, Hungary, and other countries in Europe and the Middle East, Where the Children Sleep invites its viewers to learn about the conditions faced by these children, forced from their homes, as they await an uncertain future. The exhibition is comprised of the photography of award-winning Swedish photographer Magnus Wennman, accompanied by biographical text that turns them from statistics into people. Bringing the story to life, the exhibition also includes a short film that profiles one of the refugee children.
