The exhibition "The Last Swiss Holocaust Survivors", which pays tribute to the last survivors of the Holocaust, will be on display at neimënster in Luxembourg-Grund from 7 February to 4 March 2020.
On the eve of the Second World War, Switzerland closed its borders to refugees, who could only return illegally to the country. When the deportation of the Jews began, Switzerland became the last chance for many, but several thousand Jews were turned back at the border. Some survived the concentration and extermination camps.
The "Last Swiss Holocaust Survivors" exhibition gives a voice to these last witnesses of the Holocaust and their descendants. At the heart of the exhibition are portraits and stories of survivors of Nazism. Among these portraits is that of Germaine Goldberg, originally from Luxembourg and a refugee in Switzerland during the Second World War.
Germaine Goldberg will be present at the opening of the exhibition on Thursday 6 February 2020 at 18:30, where he will share his experiences of life after the Holocaust.
The exhibition will run from 7 February to 4 March 2020, everyday from 11:00 to 18:00. Free entry.
