On-Site Film Premiere: “Speer Goes to Hollywood”

Grand winner of the Israeli Academy Awards and winner of three major awards at the Israeli Documentary Awards, “Speer Goes to Hollywood” presents the enigma of Albert Speer: the highest-ranking Nazi in Nuremberg who, despite his crimes, was spared the death sentence.
Speer was one of Hitler’s closest confidants and his chief architect, tasked with rebuilding Berlin as the capital of a global empire. Appointed Minister of Armaments and War production in 1942, Speer was responsible for 12 million slave laborers. And yet, even now, he has the reputation of being the “good Nazi” – a myth he carefully constructed himself.
“Speer Goes to Hollywood” is the film that Speer never made. Based on months of audio cassettes recorded by screenwriter Andrew Birkin, it features Speer’s callous attempt to whitewash his past in a feature film. The rare archival materials selected to illustrate his account offer us a chance to look beyond his words and ponder whether this eloquent but ultimately self-serving narcissist was recording history – or recording his story.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Director & Co-Producer, Vanessa Lapa, moderated by John Davis, Illinois Holocaust Museum Board of Directors. A wine and cheese reception will follow.
Tickets: $5.00

Walk & Talk

An RJD summer health initiative for getting your steps-in while walking & talking with other community members!

We've all heard our family use the term "давай прогуляемся" AKA lets go for a walk (and talk). Anyone can join us at anytime along our walk and the goal is to get a light-exercise at a leisurely pace without even noticing. Last year participants walked roughly four miles in a span of two hours and practiced their Russian!

Water, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Pets are welcome but please pick-up after your own pet and make sure to have a leash! We advise all participants to meet us at the beginning of the walk to stretch their legs. Breaks will be taken regularly throughout the event. Have questions? Reach out to Alex Kislov directly!

JUF’s COVID policies require that all individuals age 5 and over participating in in-person events/programs have completed their initial series of COVID 19 vaccinations.

Russian-speaking Jewish Division, JUF programs are funded, in part, by Genesis Philanthropy Group.

PRIDE & Prejudice: LGBTQ+ Voices Under Nazism

After World War II, the history of LGBTQ+ individuals impacted by the Holocaust was completely erased. In a time when LGBTQ+ history is once again being erased from textbooks and fading from public memory, preserving LGBTQ+ stories is as urgent as ever.

Join Illinois Holocaust Museum’s Director of Education, Leah Rauch (she/her), and Associate Manager of Education, Matthew Sackel (he/him), as they share little-known stories of LGBTQ+ people who perished or survived the Nazi regime and reflect on the importance of being a voice for those who were silenced.

Online Lunch & Learn: Jewish and Indigenous People of Australia

Travel with author and Jewish historian Irene Shaland to Australia, from Sydney and Melbourne to the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest, to understand the land, its people, and their history. Discover how Aboriginal people played an important role in opening Australia to Jewish refugees escaping from the Nazi occupied Europe and how, years later, the descendants of these refugees were at the forefront of the struggle for the human rights of Aboriginal people.
In early December 1938, a delegation of Aboriginal people marched to Melbourne in the Australian state of Victoria. This was not a protest a State or Federal government in defense of their own human rights: it was a brave action demanding Germany to stop the prosecution of the Jews of Europe.
The leader of this march, William Cooper, was the founder of the Australian Aboriginal League and an unsung hero of the Aboriginal human rights struggle. In his own country, Cooper and his people had no legal rights and were officially classified as an equivalent of “flora and fauna.” At the time, Australia maintained the “White Australia Polices” and considered Jews, though not classified as “colored,” to be the “others” who should not be issued entrance visas.

Special Exhibition - Ghost Army: The Combat Con Artists of World War II

Ghost Army: The Combat Con Artists of World War II tells the heroic tale of the top-secret U.S. Army’s 23rd Headquarters Special Troops, known as the “Ghost Army,” and their covert operations across Europe that helped win the war, armed with nothing heavier than .50 caliber machine guns. This carefully selected group of artists, engineers, professional soldiers, and draftees—the first mobile, multimedia, tactical deception unit in U.S. Army history—saved thousands of lives and played an important part in Allied victory in World War II.

Consisting of 82 officers and 1,023 men, this top-secret unit was capable of simulating two whole divisions (approximately 30,000 men) and used inflatable tanks and vehicles, fake radio traffic, sound effects, and even phony generals to fool German forces during WWII’s final year. Originally curated by The National WWII Museum, Ghost Army sheds light on a story that was kept secret for over 50 years after the war ended.

The exhibition will detail the 22 large-scale deceptions launched by the “Ghost Army” from Normandy to the Rhine River between D-Day and the end of the war. Featured artifacts include artwork, uniforms, and inflatable tanks and planes, as well as text panels detailing unit operations, profiles of unit officers, archival photography, and sketches from unit officers that educate visitors on these unlikely heroes.
