Legacy of Absence Galleries

The Legacy of Absence Galleries in the new Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center focuses on the feelings of sadness and loss that continue in the shadow of the Holocaust and other modern genocides, including Cambodia, Rwanda and the Soviet Gulag. The six galleries feature photographs, works of contemporary art, and multimedia displays from world-renowned artists such as Samuel Bak, Betye Saar and Jozef Szajna, among many others.Chris Walker/Tribune photo
