Since 2001, Father Patrick Desbois, a French-Catholic priest, has led a truly historic undertaking of identifying and locating undiscovered mass graves of Jews killed during the Holocaust in Eastern Europe. In 2004, he began to research the story of the Jews, Roma and other victims murdered in Eastern Europe during WWII by the Nazi mobile killing units, the Einsatzgruppen.
Learn about Father Desbois, world renowned author of Holocaust by Bullets, and hear him recount his personal journey to preserve the memory of entire communities that were murdered. Father Desbois’ work seeks to advance the understanding of the atrocities committed during the Holocaust gathering historical, anthropological, psychological, and legal evidence, with relentless motivation to interview all the witnesses before they are gone. This profound program is not to be missed.
