This exhibition tells the story of the saved children of Buchenwald.   This panel exhibition was created by the renowned French Jewish humanitarian organization OSE (Œuvre de Secours aux Enfant), which saved hundreds of Jewish refugee children before, during, and after World War II.

In early 1945, the Jewish underground in Buchenwald established a special barrack within the camp to shelter 600 children. Ellie Wiesel was one of these children. After the camp was liberated, the OSE played a major role in relocating them. They escorted hundreds of children to France, Switzerland, and England. The exhibition looks at life before the Holocaust, ghettos and life during the war, the Buchenwald camp, and life after the war.

The exhibition will be on display at the San Francisco Public Library from January 10 to March 15, 2015 and is in partnership with Lehrhaus Judaica and the Jewish Family and Children’s Services Holocaust Center.
