Gestures Of Sympathy


What would be a simple gesture that each one of us could do to ameliorate the world around us? Through five specific stories of Jews rescued during the Holocaust, utilizing the material of the temporary exhibition «The Good Shepherds. Metropolitans and Chief Rabbis in the Face of the Holocaust», as well as from the Oral History Archive of the JMG, we examine various gestures of sympathy. Our aim is not only to honour the rescuers, but also to inspire the participants with the value of solidarity, highlighting the importance of individual choice.
