Explore engaging games, multimedia, and interactive exhibits in Make a Difference! The Harvey L. Miller Family Youth Exhibition, where children ages 8-12 can have fun discovering ways to respect differences, address bullying, and take a stand on issues that matter to them. Exhibits include Take A Stand, a virtual reality game where frogs confront "bullies" in their pond; Choices, a peek inside school lockers to find inspiring stories about Rosa Parks and Anne Frank as well as modern-day teens who took a stand; and What Do You See, where kids explore an interactive mural to see who is standing up for what is right and who could use a hand.

The Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center tells the story of the Holocaust through richly designed, interactive exhibitions that will both move and inspire you. World-class special exhibitions explore broad themes that foster the promotion of human rights and the elimination of genocide, including Ruth Gruber: Photojournalist. On display through June 1, 2014, the exhibition celebrates the remarkable life, vision, and heroic tenacity of a 20th century pioneer and trailblazing photojournalist.
