The Righteous Among the Nations, a Yad Vashem exhibit
Yad Vashem’s exhibition “Righteous Among the Nations” tells the stories of 17 people who rescued Jews during the Holocaust. In a world in which hostility and indifference prevailed, there was a small non-Jewish minority who regarded the Jews as fellow human beings who came within the bounds of their universe of obligation. These individuals mustered extraordinary courage to uphold human values, and to rescue hunted Jews with no expectation of remuneration. These were the Righteous Among the Nations. Rescue took many forms and the Righteous came from different nations, religions and walks of life. What they had in common was that they protected their Jewish neighbors in a world of total moral collapse.
The exhibition is free and open to the public
