“What enabled us to offer moral resistance and stay firm in the face of a tyrannical state?

Drawing by Simone Arnold, 12, subjected to a grilling in Mulhouse (Alsace), March 1943“Our strong convictions helped us reject omnipresent propaganda, respond to hateful persecution with love and forgiveness, and conquer despair thanks to our firm hope.

“May these reflections, testimonies, and narratives help our visitors understand that intolerance leads to exclusion, persecution, and ultimately annihilation.

“May these historical accounts likewise inspire strength and courage in those suffering oppression of all kinds.”
