Give now to the ‘Stop the Sirens” campaign. 100% of funds will go to moving children to safety, caring for elderly who can not leave the shelters, helping victims of these attacks rebuild their homes and businesses and more. Show your solidarity and support of the people of Israel.

 aerialstarsThe Peoria Holocaust Memorial is currently being renovated and refurbished. After eleven years of being on display outside, the elements, and the weight of the buttons have taken a toll on the structures. We are taking steps to improve the internal structures in order to preserve them for the years to come. The buttons, glass, aluminum and other pieces are being stores and will be cleaned prior to reinstallation. The date of the re-opening is not yet available, but will be announced as soon as it is available.
