"This kind of exhibition sheds light; it gives hope of the humanity of human beings."
(Ramle, Israel)—A 3-month long exhibition on 63 Albanian Muslims who sheltered Jews during World War II opened in Israel this week to mark . Newsmax reports that it was the first time Yad Vashem, Israel's national Holocaust memorial, has hosted a standing exhibition in Hebrew and Arabic, and holding the event in a town where thousands of Arabs live alongside Jews, underscored the organizers' goal of improving relations.
According to the report, some of the teenagers said they understood the difference in numbers: 6 million Jews died during the Holocaust, but said they wanted their own pain to be acknowledged, particularly in relation to the current crisis.
"I'm proud that Muslims helped the Jews and saved them. But we have to respect each other's feelings," said one, Henadi Abu Shab.
Yad Vashem's chairman, Avner Shalev, said "There is nothing in common with that period and this bitter conflict that goes on and on ...but if both sides recognize their right to exist, side by side, we'll find a way. This kind of exhibition sheds light; it gives hope of the humanity of human beings."
