Exhibit: Picturing Moral Courage: The Rescuers

Exhibit: Picturing Moral Courage: The Rescuers

Created by PROOF: Media for Social Justice, The Rescuers is an exhibition of photographs and extraordinary stories from the Holocaust, and the genocides that occurred in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Rwanda, and Cambodia. In each of these violent narratives, there are remarkable stories of ordinary heroes – farmers, taxi drivers, nuns, mothers and fathers – who risked their lives to save members of targeted groups. These rescuers are emblems of hope.

The Rescuers exhibit includes 21 portraits and personal accounts of survivors and those who rescued them. The goal of the exhibit is to raise awareness and promote tolerance, coexistence, and personal commitment to fight injustice.

The Rescuers is sponsored by the High Library, and made possible with the generous support of The Center for Peacemaking and Global Understanding; The Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Title IX; and The Office of the President.”

The exhibition can be viewed until February 8 and is free and open to the public all hours the High Library is open.
