The exhibition charts the work of the Żegota Council for Aid to Jews, which operated from 1942 to 1945.

The organisation included members of Polish and Jewish political groups and worked to save Jews from the Holocaust in Nazi German-occupied Poland.

The exhibition was set up ahead of the 75th anniversary of the establishment of the Council.

The display can be seen in Warsaw until January 5, after which it will travel to other Polish cities and abroad.
