Courage is a matter of choice

19th April - 15th August 2023

They hid people or took them out of the country, falsified papers or disobeyed orders, despite the threat of severe punishment. "Righteous Among the Nations" is an official title awarded by the International Holocaust Memorial Yad Vashem Jerusalem on behalf of the State of Israel to non-Jews who risked their lives to save Jews during the Holocaust.

The Austrian Friends of Yad Vashem have already presented the life stories of these courageous people in the travelling exhibition "The Righteous - Courage is a Question of Choice" in numerous museums throughout Austria. The Haus der Geschichte, in cooperation with the Institute for Jewish History in Austria, is now showing this exhibition in Lower Austria for the first time.

The show, curated by Michael John and Albert Lichtblau, is complemented by biographies of "righteous" people from Lower Austria by Martha Keil, Christian Rapp and Benedikt Vogl.
