Holocaust Museum


Holocaust Museum Pilgrimage

“The Shoah can briefly be described as Nazi Germany’s systematic and nearly successful attempt, from its foreshadowing on Kristallnacht in 1938 to its actual implementation from 1942 to 1945, to murder every Jewish woman, man, and child in Europe. By the end, two out of every three members of the ancient European Jewish community had been killed—some six million people— along with millions of Gypsies (Romani), homosexuals, Poles, and other ‘subhumans’ (untermenschen).” (United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Catholic Teaching on the Shoah, 2000)

Join members of the Marquette community on Sunday, February 9 for a pilgrimage to the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center located in Skokie, IL. The Museum is dedicated to preserving the legacy of the Holocaust by honoring the memories of those who were lost and by teaching universal lessons that combat hatred, prejudice and indifference. During this pilgrimage, learn more about the Holocaust and engage in interfaith dialogue.

The total cost for students will be $8 which covers admission to the museum. To attend, register online here. Registrations will be accepted until Monday February 3. For more information on the pilgrimage, please contact Steve Blaha.
