A History for Today
On view January 20 through June 4, 2017
This powerful exhibit, developed by the Anne Frank House and sponsored in North America by the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect, tells the story of the Frank family before, during and after the rise of the Nazis. It shows how people were persecuted by political decisions and by the actions of individuals, and it depicts individuals who chose to become perpetrators, those who were bystanders, and those who were willing to resist Nazi tyranny.

Purple Heart Reunited
This November, the United States Army reunited the Purple Heart medal and certificate with the family of Tech. 5th Grade Robert Mathis at the Holocaust Memorial Center. Lt. Col. Matthew Yandura was stationed at the Jerusalem Consulate and discovered Robert Mathis’ Purple Heart certificate in a consignment shop. After months of research, Cadet Jay Choi, a senior in the Loyola Army Reserve Officer Training Corps program, located Mathis’ family. Watch this moving video of the ceremony, which includes a Color Guard conducted by the Jewish War Veterans.
