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.

The Exhibit

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.

Exhibit Contents

Four freestanding modules with one panel on each side of the module (total of eight panels); three of the modules are 8’x92″ (LxH), and the fourth module is 34”x83”.  The exhibit comes in seven easy-to-move transporter cases (with wheels) and includes lights (four per 8’x92″ module).  The panels focus on the following 12 topics/themes:
