Between Shade and Darkness – The fate of the Jews of Luxembourg between 1940 and 1945.
Traveling exhibition in German and English. Open from 15/07 to 20/09/2020 at the Topography of Terrors in Berlin.
The exhibition “Between Shade and Darkness” of the National Resistance Museum in Esch-sur-Alzette deals with the persecution, until then little known, of the Jews of Luxembourg.
In 2013, the museum presented a first version of this exhibition. In 2019, it was completely overhauled. This new German-English version, designed as an international traveling exhibition, is now presented for the first time in Germany.
An exhibition of the National Resistance Museum composed of 52 panels and accompanied by an exhibition catalog.

Aristides de Sousa Mendes
Outdoor exhibitions in French and Portuguese. Exhibited until November 2020.
Our exhibitions on the two historic subjects that united Luxembourg with Portugal during the Second World War were reprinted and reinstalled on the Place de la Résistance.
The Portuguese consul in Bordeaux Aristides de Sousa Mendes as well as the Portuguese border town of Vilar Formoso played a key role in the rescue of tens of thousands of European refugees, including many Jews, from the Nazi clutches.
These bilingual exhibitions (French and Portuguese) are a summary of the exhibitions “Aristides de Sousa Mendes”, produced by the National Archives and “Portugal and Luxembourg, country of hope in times of distress” produced by MemoShoah and shown at Neimënster.
