Among Gilles Peress's many artistic achievements was also this very moving

"To the Rescue: Eight Artists in an Archive" presented eight international
artists' responses to the historical photographic archive of the American
Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), a humanitarian relief
organization founded in 1914 to help Palestinian Jews during WWI. The work
of Magdalena Abakanowicz, Alan Berliner, Wendy Ewald, Leon Golub, Pepón
Osorio, Gilles Peress, Fred Wilson, and Terry Winters was on view at The
Jewish Museum San Francisco from March 26-June 8, 2000.
