On May 31, the exhibition “Whoever saves one, saves the whole world, will open in the Jewish Museum and the Center for Tolerance”. The righteous of the peoples of the world and their history. " It is dedicated to people who risked their lives to save Jews during the Nazi occupation of Europe.
The stories of such salvations are the stories of senior diplomats who violated the direct orders of their superiors and illegally issued rescue documents; poor peasants who hid their Jewish neighbors in basements and wells; entrepreneurs and industrialists who hired Jews to work; single women who have brought up the dead children of their already deceased parents.
After the war, people who took part in saving even one Jew from immediate extermination or deportation to death camps were given the title of Righteous Among the Nations. The exhibition at the Jewish Museum not only tells the famous stories of salvation, but also reveals the names of the lesser-known Righteous. Historical materials related to this page of Holocaust history will be explored. Among the exhibits are documents, photographs and video evidence provided by the Yad Vashem Museum in Jerusalem and the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington.
