From Don Aldo Brunacci, already founder of the Opera Casa John, to the then Bishop Monsignor Giuseppe Placido Nicolini, who pulled the strings of the underground organization who raised spontaneously, from Fater Rufino Niccacci, minor friar and guardian father of St. Damiano's convent, to the Podestà of Assisi Arnaldo Fortini, from the German Colonel Muller to the conventual friar Father Michele Todde: these and many others who helped to rescue the life of many people, otherwise destined to be deported, are among the many characters recalled in the exhibition.
One important area is also dedicated to Luigi and Trento Brizi, the Assisi's printers who printed the false documents for Hebrews and the ancient printing machine with drawers, cutter and stamps is exhibited together with pictures and acknowledgments.
The exhibition, in two languages (Italian - English), develops across four halls and, beyond the writings, also includes a video section with interviews to some of the protagonists, collected before their disappearance, that tell directly about what they did to rescue Hebrews, beyond focuses on the historical period.
