Shoah: How was it Humanly Possible

Produced by the Traveling Exhibitions Department, Museums Division of Yad Vashem, 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 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 panels feature explanatory texts, interspersed with quotes of the Jewish victims, survivors, Righteous Among the Nations and bystanders, as well as original photographs, art and documents.

Remember only that I was innocent and, just like you, mortal on that day, I, too, had had a face marked by rage, by pity and joy, quite simply, a human face!
