Barnet council has teamed up with Yad Vashem to mount a special exhibition in the run-up to Holocaust Memorial Day.
The display, which opened on Friday, focuses on the work of Yad Vashem, Israeli Holocaust Memorial, in researching and documenting the Nazi genocide of the Jews.
It features personal and moving accounts of stories from the Holocaust.
The exhibition is on show at Chipping Barnet library until Wednesday January 17, when it will move to Hendon town hall until Sunday January 21.
The council plans to hold a commemoration on Holocaust Memorial Day, Sunday January 28, at the Hendon campus of Middlesex university.
Councillor Brian Salinger, the Mayor of Barnet, said: “In Barnet, we are proud to have a large Jewish population and I encourage everyone to come along and look through the exhibition.”
The display also includes a section on some of the Albanian Righteous Among the Nations, non-Jews who protected Jews during the Holocaust.
During World War Two, Albania, the only majority Muslim state in Europe, protected up to 1,800 Jews living in the small Balkan country, providing sanctuary and refusing to hand over lists of Jews to the Nazis.
Councillor Salinger added: “This exhibition will help tell some of the incredible and under-reported stories of brave Muslims, honoured by Yad Vashem as Righteous Amongst the Nations, who rescued Jews during the Holocaust.”
