Temporary Exhibition‘Was there any way to help them in this desolation?’ Rescue of Jews in occupied Poland 27 June 2020 - 30 September 2020
‘Was there any way to help them in this desolation?’ Years later, this question is posed by Władysław Bartoszewski, one of those who risked their lives and lent a helping hand to persecuted Jews during the Holocaust.
The new mobile exhibition by the Museum of Poles Saving Jews is devoted to the issue of polish help to Jewish people during WWII. By showing the realities of the Holocaust in occupied Poland – from the German invasion in 1939, through the implementation of the plan of the extermination of Jews by the occupier, to the end of the war – it presents the individual stories of the Rescued and Rescuers and their dramatic choices.
