SHOAH 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.
Rescue by Jews during the Holocaust "That was when my conscience said – Act!"
The Jews in the Holocaust found themselves facing unprecedented situations, which tested their human principles of solidarity. Despite this, there are a multitude of cases across the board of mutual aid which was nothing short of essential to the survival of a particular individual. In this context, a fair amount of Jews chose to act to save other Jews, under a very real threat to their lives. These rescuers demonstrated tremendous resourcefulness, adhering to their missions with endless devotion. A unique aspect of this phenomenon lay in the persecuted victims' ability to identify the threat facing them and, despite their basic survival instinct, find within themselves the moral courage to step up and engage in the rescue of other persecuted Jews. These rescue efforts were in many cases made possible thanks to cooperation with non-Jews, and helped save the lives of many Jews during the Holocaust.
"They Say There Is a Land"
Longings for Eretz Israel during the Holocaust
For 2,000 years, Jews prayed and dreamed of their return to Zion. The affinity to Eretz Israel was expressed in prayer, philosophy, poem and song, in life-cycle events and on Jewish holidays – not in a political or active manner, but by individuals and groups who immigrated to Eretz Israel, and settled there. Others visited and wrote about the Land, and for hundreds of years, there was a consistent, albeit limited, Jewish presence in Eretz Israel.
This exhibition focuses on the longings for Eretz Israel during the years 1933-1948 – from the rise of the Nazi Party to power to the outbreak of World War II, and from the annihilation of European Jewry until the end of the war and the establishment of the State of Israel.
World War II and the Holocaust shook the foundations of the outlooks and worldviews that had developed and existed among the Jewish people, regarding its future. However, even during those terrible times, in the midst of the struggle for life, Eretz Israel held a firm place in the hearts and thoughts of the Jews.
The Holocaust determined the argument among the Jewish people. The different ideologies once running through the Jewish communities collapsed in its wake. The processes promoted by the Zionist movement even before the Shoah, and that were strengthened afterwards, brought about, after a stubborn struggle, the establishment of a Jewish state in the Land of Israel.
This exhibition gives expression to the unique voice of Jewish women in the Holocaust: their choices and responses in the face of the evil, brutality and relentless hardship that they were forced to grapple with.
The exhibition features nine aspects of the Jewish woman's daily life during the Holocaust: Love, Motherhood, Caring for Others, Womanhood, Resistance and Rescue, Friendship, Faith, Food and the Arts.
Each aspect is accompanied by a personal story, related in the first person.
By giving expression to these individual women, the exhibition reveals the poignant stories behind the historical events, and provides faces and voices within the darkness and silence.
This exhibition provides a glimpse into art created during the Holocaust in ghettos, camps, forests, and while in hiding.
The artworks reflect the tension between the artists' need to document the terrible events they endured and their desire to break free through art, and escape into the realms of beauty, imagination, and faith.
These artworks, from Yad Vashem's Art Collection, stand as testimony to the strength of the human spirit that refuses to surrender.
This exhibition is dedicated to the unique stories of children during the Holocaust. During a period when Jewish communities underwent social and familial upheaval, children living in this reality essentially lost their childhood.
The drawings, poems, letters and toys displayed in this exhibition demonstrate the unique capacity of children to hold on to the forces of life, creativity, imagination, and optimism, despite facing dire circumstances.
About six million Jewish men, women and children were systematically murdered by the Nazis during the Holocaust. Over one million were murdered in Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest extermination camp during WWII.
This exhibition depicts the only known visual documentation of the arrival of a transport of Jews to Auschwitz-Birkenau.
The photos in the album show the entire process except for the killing itself of the Jews from the Carpatho-Ruthenia region.
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.
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.
