During the Second World War, many Muslims, especially in South-East Europe, sheltered Jewish neighbours from the Nazis. Some are honoured as Righteous Muslims by Yad Vashem.  Faith Matters, a Muslim civic organisation, has created an exhibition telling some of the stories. The exhibition has been displayed in many places in the UK, but its first public showing in Scotland is a joint project between , Marchmont St Giles’, the Edinburgh Liberal Jewish Community and the Muslim Women’s Association of Edinburgh.  The exhibition will be on display in Butterflies Café at Marchmont St Giles. It will be launched Wed 1st April, 6pm. The exhibition is open to the public in Butterflies Café and can be viewed whenever the cafe is open, It will run until 12th April, all welcome.
