We present twenty eight individuals and organisations whose activities were motivated by the preservation of dignity and human rights.
THE RIGHT ADDRESS - Hiding Jews in occupied Warsaw
Where, in Warsaw, did Jews hide during the War? How many of these places still exist today? Perhaps, without realising, we pass by them everyday.
Polish Artist Rescuing Jews
Poles, who saved Jews during the Holocaust, came from all sorts of places and were driven by differing motivations. Among them were well-known artists – writers, actors and musicians.
TO MY MUMMY AS A KEEPSAKE - Jewish Children Rescued From the Holocaust
The exhibition tells individual stories and the common experiences of all rescued Jewish children - the dramatic separation from their families, a new home, a new identity and a difficult life after the War.
THE HOUSE UNDER A WACKY STAR - Jews in Hiding at the Warsaw Zoo
An asylum, a harbour, an ark - this is how the Warsaw Zoo was described by those who survived World War II there with the help of the Żabiński family.
THEY RISKED THEIR LIVES - Poles Who Saved Jews During the Holocaust
