Emmy-award winning doc about neo-Nazi march in Skokie to air on WTTW

The Emmy Award-winning documentary Skokie: Invaded But Not Conquered will air Thursday, April 24 at 9 p.m. on WTTW. Produced by the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center, the film examines the personalities and issues connected to the attempted neo-Nazi March in Skokie in the late 1970s.

Skokie: Invaded But Not Conquered makes extensive use of archival footage and contemporary interviews to reveal how a debate over First Amendment rights inspired Holocaust survivors to become activists, ultimately leading them to share their collective and individual histories and work to create the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center.

Additionally, the film will screen on Sunday, March 30 at 1:30 p.m. at the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center, 9603 Woods Dr. in Skokie. Make a reservation.
