Code Name Żegota – the Hidden Aid

This exhibition is devoted to people engaged in underground work during World War II as part of the Krakow branch of the Polish Council to Aid Jews (Żegota). The exhibition currently presented in Oskar Schindler’s Factory, a branch of the Historical Museum, expands upon the themes present in the permanent exhibition Kraków under Nazi Occupation 1939–1945. It is not limited to presenting the organisational structures of “Żegota,” its methods of operation and examples of aid, but it also presents the wider context of rescuing Jews. The exhibition draws the visitors’ attention to specific cases, stories of individuals through which it presents the complex reality of the German occupation. The exhibition is based mainly on the testimonies of survivors and witnesses, as well as on preserved documents.
