Where did Jews hide during the war? How many hideouts have been preserved until today? Perhaps you have been passing them by on a daily basis?
According to historians’ estimates, there were up to 27,000 Jews in hiding in Warsaw throughout the war years. We will never know where exactly or how many survived. Poles, who decided to help, risked their lives, since any form of help offered to Jews in Poland was punishable by death. This virtual exhibition is dedicated to both the rescuers and the rescued. We present you selected stories of rescue from Warsaw. You can visit the locations virtually at home, or while on a walk in the city.
