On March 7, the Illinois Holocaust Museum hosted its 2018 Humanitarian Awards Dinner to honor Mitchell Feiger and Pamela L. Netzky, who received the Humanitarian Award, and the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, which received the Distinguished Community Leadership Award. The keynote presentation featured a conversation between Tony Blair, former prime minister of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and veteran newscaster Bill Kurtis. This event raised more than $2.5 million for the museum’s educational mission.
