On May 31, the exhibition “Who Saved One, Saves the 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 rescues are the stories of high-ranking diplomats who violated the direct orders of their superiors and illegally issued saving documents; poor peasants hiding their Jewish neighbors in cellars and wells; entrepreneurs and industrialists who employed Jews; single women who have taken on the upbringing of Jewish children have already lost their parents.
After the war, people who took part in rescuing even one Jew from the immediate destruction or deportation to death camps began to be awarded the title of Righteous Among the Nations. The exhibition in the Jewish Museum not only tells the famous stories of salvation, but also reveals the names of lesser-known Righteous Men. Historical materials related to this Holocaust history page will be explored. Among the exhibits are documents, photographs and video certificates provided by the Yad Vashem Museum in Jerusalem and the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington.
