United States Holocaust Memorial Museum: Flight and Rescue

As this online exhibit opens, visitors will hear a prelude played on the piano and a map of Eastern Europe and Russia unfold before their eyes. This is the beginning of the Flight and Rescue exhibit, presented by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. With the use of powerful visual materials, primary documents, interviews, and striking narration, this interactive exhibit tells the story of how some 2100 Jewish refugees were able to escape the Holocaust through the assistance of a Dutch businessman and a Japanese diplomat. In each of the exhibit's four sections, visitors can pause the narration to look through some of the primary documents that help provide additional context for different elements of the refugee's journey. After viewing each of these four sections, visitors can also read the full-text of the exhibition, which is available in English, Chinese, Dutch, and Japanese. For visitors who would like a closer look at any of the documents used to create this exhibition, a search engine will let them examine each one in great detail.
