EXHIBIT ON RESCUERS

WHOEVER SAVES A SINGLE LIFE… RESCUERS OF JEWS DURING THE HOLOCAUST

Whoever Saves a Single Life… Rescuers of Jews During the Holocaust showcases some of those rare – but exceedingly important – instances where people fought to safeguard their Jewish fellow citizens during the Holocaust.  In a time of overwhelming death and destruction, rescuers did not stand by silently.  They chose another way, and their bravery offers us a glimmer of hope. 

Whoever Saves a Single Life… Rescuers of Jews During the Holocaust is an easy-to-install exhibit of freestanding structures.  It is a non-linear exhibit, arranged thematically rather than chronologically, and is accessible to a variety of individuals, from middle school students to adults.  It is ideal for small museums, historical societies, Holocaust centers and museums, community and cultural centers, synagogues and churches, libraries, and schools and universities.
