Courtesy, PROOF: Media for Social Justice, Curated by Leora Kahn, Photography by Riccardo Gangale “The Rescuers: Picturing Moral Courage”

March 28, 2014 through August 31, 2014
 In this exhibition, viewers will encounter images and stories of people who engaged in rescue activities during the Holocaust and genocides in Cambodia, Bosnia and Rwanda. “The Rescuers: Picturing Moral Courage” is based on the work of Leora Kahn, who researched and interviewed rescuers from the Holocaust and other genocides. Each person’s image and testimony that visitors encounter in this exceptional photographic exhibition reflect “ordinary” citizens, who, by choosing to rescue the “other,” became heroes in a time when their country was committing acts of genocide.
