Attempted Nazi March of 1977 and 1978 in Skokie
Digitized Document Collection of Skokie Public Library

In addition to items available at Skokie Public Library, we have digitized a collection of newspaper articles and other materials about the attempt of the National Socialist Party of America (Nazis) to march in Skokie, Illinois in 1978. The Library plans to digitize primary documents from this controversy and secondary resources relating to its First Amendment implications.

We have obtained copyright permission for all of the articles relating to the march from the Skokie Life and the Skokie Review, and are seeking permission for articles from the now-defunct Skokie News.

To view the articles as PDF (Portable Document Format) files, click on the thumbnail image of the article to the left of each record.
