(JTA) — A museum dedicated to Polish Righteous Gentiles is slated to be built in Poland.

A Righteous Among Nations museum dedicated to the thousands of Poles who saved Jews from the Nazis and are honored at Israel’s Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial museum will be built in the village of Rzeszow in southern Poland, Polish Radio reported Thursday.

The museum is set to be built near the site where a Polish family was killed by the Nazis after it was discovered that they were hiding eight Jews.

Multimedia presentations and video accounts of World War II and the Holocaust reportedly will be featured at the museum.
