“Whoever Saves a Life … Rescuers of Jews During the Holocaust”

April 11, 2011 through May 23, 2011
Cy-Fair College, 9191 Baker Cypress Road, Cypress, TX 77433

“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. 

A small minority, when confronted with the disappearance of their Jewish neighbors, or upon witnessing the brutal treatment of Jewish children in the streets, chose to help. Despite the risk to their lives and the lives of their loved ones, these precious few acted against the Nazi goal to murder every Jew and saved lives.

The exhibit includes a history of the Holocaust, as well as panels on rescue networks, young rescuers and religious rescuers and sections on Americans in Europe and the diplomatic corps.
Viewing hours are 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays. Admission is free.

This exhibit, underwritten by Kempner Capital Management, Inc. and the Harris and Eliza Kempner Fund, was created by the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous and is traveled by Holocaust Museum Houston. For more information, call 713-942-8000 or e-mail
