Take a Stand Center 

The Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center’s “groundbreaking” Take a Stand Center preserves the stories of Holocaust survivors. Guests will be able to experience a conversation with 13 Holocaust survivors through 3D holography that uses voice recognition technology in what the museum calls a “first in the world experience.” The center will also introduce guests to 40 Upstanders who worked or are working for civic and social rights, as well as ways they themselves can become Upstanders.
