UN Exhibition: Lives Cut Short: Seeking Refuge During the Holocaust

On display 16 January - 26 February 2019

This exhibit is organized by the Documentation Centre of Austrian Resistance and the Norwegian Center for Holocaust and Minority Studies with the support of the Permanent Missions of Austria and Norway to the United Nations.

Through the story of young Holocaust victim, Ruth Maier, this exhibition portrays the broader history of the Jewish refugees’ search for safety during the Holocaust. It shows the courage and desperate choices Jewish parents made to keep their children alive. Ruth’s diaries and writings provide a searing testimony of creative promise destroyed through the actions of the Nazis and their collaborators and supporters.
