Żegota – The Council for Aid to Jews

from 21. 3. 2018 to 30. 6. 2018


The Council for Aid to Jews, codenamed "Żegota", was a unique, secret organisation affiliated with Polish authorities. Its goal was to rescue Jewish fellow citizens mass-murdered by the German occupier during the Second World War. Risking their own lives, civilian conspirators saved at least a few thousand people from extermination.
