Holocaust Museum Field Trip

Eighth graders at Wood Oaks took a field trip to the Illinois Holocaust and Education Center. During their visit, they participated in a guided tour where they learned about events that led up to World War II and the persecution and mass murder of the Jews. They heard first hand accounts from Holocaust survivors and also learned about the unsuccessful attempt to stop NeoNazis from marching in Skokie in the 1970s in the midst of a battle over free speech.

Here are some pictures from the field trip.
