How Was It Humanly Possible?

The Holocaust was an unprecedented genocide, total and systematic, perpetrated in Europe from 1933 to 1945, by Nazi Germany and its collaborators, with the aim of annihilating the Jewish people from the face of the Earth.

The exhibition deals with major historical aspects of the Holocaust, beginning with Jewish life in pre-Holocaust Europe and ending with the liberation of Nazi concentration and extermination camps across the continent and the remarkable return to life of the survivors.

The panels feature explanatory texts, interspersed with personal stories of the victims, quotes, original photographs and images of relevant artifacts.

This exhibition features photographs taken by the American photographer Norman Gershman and personal rescue stories of Muslim-Albanian families who saved Jews and were recognized as Righteous Among the Nations by Yad Vashem.

The remarkable assistance afforded the Jews was grounded in Besa, a code of honor, which still today serves as the highest ethical code in Albania.

The main theme of the exhibition is based on 12 large photographs and the outstanding rescue stories behind them. The photographs reveal the rescuers' humanity as well as the unique ethnic identity of the Albanian population today.

ANGUISH OF LIBERATION
As Reflected in Art

Children Alone. Landsberg DP camp, 1945. Samuel Bak

This exhibition features 11 artworks that were created immediately after the liberation and up until 1947. The exhibition attempts to investigate how survivors reacted to the liberation through art.

When liberation finally arrived, the survivors found themselves torn between their desire to return to life and their need to face the devastation and mourn. As artist Jakob Zim declared: “I live with the shadow and create with the light.” His evocative words exemplify that for the survivors their choice to paint epitomized their renewed embrace of life. The exhibition is based on the Yad Vashem Art Collection.

The main theme of the exhibition is comprised of the artworks and the personal story behind each of them.
