Final day for – Holocaust by Bullets: Uncovering the Nazi Massacres in Eastern Europe 1941-44. Opens Tues 9 May runs until Mon 29 May.
Between 1941 and 1944, over 2 million Jews were massacred when Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union. Until recently, this chapter of Holocaust history was relatively unknown. In 2004, Father Patrick Desbois initiated an ongoing effort to thoroughly research it. His ‘Yahad – In Unum’ research teams ask the aging witnesses to share their memories and videotape their testimony, in order to identify and record each site of mass execution of Jews, Roma and other victims, to make sure that their traces do not disappear from the earth and that they can be respectfully memorialised.
