Holocaust by Bullets with Fr. Patrick Desbois
The Program for Jewish Civilization invites the public to join us for a lecture by Father Patrick Desbois, president of the Yahad?In Unum Association. Since 2001, he and his team have made an effort to locate every mass grave and site at which Jews were killed during the Holocaust in Ukraine. To date, they have identified 800 of an estimated 2,000 such locations. They are also collecting artifacts and, most significantly, recording video testimonies from eyewitnesses?many of whom are speaking publicly for the first time. These invaluable testimonies will become part of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum?s permanent collection.
This lecture is a free public event which is part of the Jan Karski Institute for Holocaust Education's summer certificate program for high school educators.
RSVP is requested.
