Prague, Bubny Memorial of Silence
The “Passports” exhibition was shown in the building of the former Prague railway station, from which thousands of Jews were transported to ghettos and concentration camps, and which now houses the Bubny Memorial of Silence. The opportunity to present the exhibition to the public in this place is particularly significant, because having a Latin American passport was sometimes the only way to avoid transport to the death camps (their bearers were instead transferred to camps where there was a chance to be exchanged for German prisoners of war).
