The travelling exhibition 'Between Life and Death' showcasing stories of rescue during the Holocaust has arrived to Bełżec, Poland.
'Between Life and Death' had its premiere at the European Commission headquarters in Brussels and has been on tour since 2018, visiting Brussels, Amsterdam, Bratislava and many other European cities. Until 28 August it will be hosted in Bełżec by the local Museum and Memorial Site, which was created at the site of a Nazi extermination camp.
The exhibition's aim is to give a voice to both rescuers and survivors, drawing attention to their endeavours, courage and will to live. Their fates are shown against a broader historical background, indicating the particular circumstances they had to face. The exhibit has recently been complemented by a special section dedicated to diplomats who used their influence to help those threatened by the Holocaust.
