The Regional Museum in Murska Sobota, Slovenia
The Regional Museum in Murska Sobota, the Sinagoga Maribor Center for Jewish Cultural Heritage and the Polish Embassy in Slovenia prepared the “Paszporty życia / Passports for life” exhibition devoted to the activities of the Ładoś Group. The exhibition shows how Polish diplomats under the guidance of Aleksander Ładoś, the Polish envoy in Bern, cooperated with representatives of Jewish organizations in Switzerland to organize the illegal purchase and issuance of passports and citizenship certificates for four South and Central American countries, thus increasing the chances for European Jews to survive the Holocaust by having them sent to internment camps instead of death camps. The exhibition uses archival materials and copies of documents prepared by the Pilecki Institute. The inauguration of the exhibition with the participation of Ambassador Krzysztof Olendzki was prepared on the occasion of International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
The “Paszporty życia / Passports for life” exhibition was published on the museum’s website and can be viewed online at https://ths.li/WQSDGM
