The Silent Heroes Memorial Center

Silent Heroes Memorial Centre

commemorates those people who supported persecuted Jews during the Nazi dictatorship. The example set by these helpers–often referred to as "silent heroes"–shows that there was in fact leeway for maneuvering to help people at risk in Nazi Germany and in the German-occupied territories.

The permanent exhibition presents information about the persecution and plight of Jews facing imminent deportation, about how some of them decided to resist the threat to their lives by going underground, and about the actions and motivations of the men and women who helped them.

The exhibition is centered around ten stories. Objects, documents, and photographs in the exhibition illustrate both successful and failed rescue attempts by individuals and networks. The varied relationships between those who helped and those who had made the conscious decision to defy the Nazi policies of deportations and murder are presented.
