The Museum’s collection contains several artifacts related to this program, like the posters below. These posters were made by Theodore Charak for the Chicago chapter of the Jewish Defense League in June 1978. A group of Nazis had planned a march in Skokie, Illinois, a heavily Jewish suburb of Chicago with a large community of Holocaust survivors. The plans sparked a significant outcry, including court actions to block them, leading the organizers to march in Chicago instead. Charak, who worked occasionally as a professional sign maker, made these posters as an act of defiance against the Nazi marchers.
