Otto Weidt was a broom and brush maker who risked his life protecting his blind and deaf Jewish workers from the Nazis. The exhibit is inside the very workshop where he hid an entire family in a room behind a cabinet, provided food and false papers and bribed Gestapo officials into releasing Jews scheduled for deportation. A highlight is an emotional video in which survivors recall Weidt’s efforts to save their lives.
