    The Illinois Holocaust Museum & Educational Center definitely lives up to its name educationally, at least from my experience there. They had an exhibition about the capture of Aldof Eichmann, which I believe is open until 18 June 2017. It was a fascinating and informative experience. I believe strongly in visiting places that document important historical events. Particularly events like the holocaust which remind us that if society isn't careful to adhere to an objective moral standard, for instance the morals that America was founded on, then it's not hard to be sucked into madness and evil, which inevitably leads to committing heinous crimes.

    Absolutely stunning layout brings you from before the war starts to the current times. You will need 2-3 hours to see everything.

    You go through what people really went through. It is very moving, very well done museum. Never forget.

    Very informative. Don't come here if you're feeling depressed, though. It will only make you feel worse. It's heavy stuff.
