Children of Antonin Kalina

A native of Třebíč, Antonín Kalina saved more than nine hundred young, mostly Jewish boys in the Buchenwald concentration camp during World War II. Many of them became world famous people, successful in many fields. The exhibition focuses on the life stories of  photographer and historian Naftali Fürst, writer Imre Kertézs, poet, writer and playwright Pavel Kohn, Jewish activist Israel Laszlo Lazar,  filmmaker Alex Moskovic, physicist  Felix Weinberg and writer Elie Wiesel. Deserved attention is also paid to Kalina's lifelong friend, doctor and humanist Jindřich Flusser, who actively and significantly participated in rescuing the boys in Buchenwald.
