2. Justice Not Vengeance: The Simon Wiesenthal Story

The Life and Legacy of Simon Wiesenthal s a comprehensive exhibit examining the life’s work of Nazi hunter and humanitarian Simon Wiesenthal, who, together with his wife, Cyla, lost 89 family members during the Holocaust. A central point of this exhibit highlights that Simon Wiesenthal did not seek revenge but rather justice, and that only by finding, arresting and then bringing more than 1,000 Nazi war criminals to trial, could there be a future where history would not repeat itself.
