This is a photographic and text exhibition of people who hid, protected and saved Jews during World War II, when six million Jews were murdered. The rescuers were individuals of extraordinary courage from all walks of life throughout many different countries who did the right thing by saving lives. Four decades after the end of the war, Gay Block and Malka Drucker spent three years interviewing and photographing the rescuers. According to an article in the Washington Post, Drucker was astonished by the diversity of the rescuers. "They came from the wealthy, from the poor, from religious, from atheistic, peasant, aristocratic, educated and illiterate."
