Violence, illness, poverty, depression: suffering affects everyone and makes them dependent on others. Who cares for whom and who is excluded from receiving aid? The principles of tikkun olam (heal the world) and zedakah (charity) form the foundation of the exhibition. It explores the medical, psychological, and social welfare programs established in Vienna, with particular focus on the people behind these initiatives. The achievements of prominent male and female Viennese Jewish doctors are juxtaposed with the long-neglected stories of mothers, midwives, nurses, and social workers. Although the Nazi regime destroyed pivotal infrastructure, care was still provided. In light of war, terror, and the climate catastrophe, the question “Who cares?” gains heightened importance. Empathy and solidarity remain, now more than ever, vital for peaceful coexistence.
