The Silent Heroes Memorial commemorates Jews who resisted Nazi persecution and those who helped them. The example of the helpers, often referred to as "silent heroes," shows that it was possible to support the persecuted even in National Socialist Germany and in German-occupied Europe.
The permanent exhibition provides information about the persecution and the predicament of the Jews in the face of the threat of deportation and about the decision of individuals to resist the deadly threat by fleeing underground. It addresses the conditions of life in hiding as well as the actions and motives of those who helped the persecuted.
The focus is on seven examples of rescue attempts from various European countries. The exhibition shows non-Jewish, but also Jewish helpers as well as rescue networks, successful as well as failed rescue attempts. The persecuted are also taken into consideration: They had to make the active decision to resist the National Socialist policy of persecution and murder.
