Diplomats of Mercy: Diplomats Who Helped Jews Escape from the Holocaust

This exhibit acknowledges the extraordinary deeds of diplomats representing nations from around the world. When many collaborated with Nazis, and when most were bystanders, the actions of these diplomats stand out as beacons of light in an otherwise dark time. These heroes, because of diplomatic immunity and in most cases without the approval of their governments, were able to save thousands of Jews, often against their own best interests.
