Holocaust Museum Houston is proud to present: "The Rescuers: Picturing Moral Courage." This exceptional photographic exhibit reflects "ordinary" citizens who became heroes in a time when their country was committing acts of genocide.  Learn about their struggles and heroism through moving images and fascinating stories.

More than 30 images, accompanied by text from interviews, tell the stories of farmers, taxi drivers, nuns, mothers and fathers who risked everything to save neighbors, friends and strangers during the Holocaust and the genocides or Rwanda, Bosnia and Cambodia. “The Rescuers: Picturing Moral Courage” is based on the work of Leora Kahn, who researched and interviewed rescuers from the Holocaust and other genocides. They came from different countries and different times, and for many, this is the first time they have told their stories – some risking their lives again in the telling.
