GHRAM: Holocaust by Bullets: Yahad – In Unum, 10 Years of Investigation public program

June 11, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for the free public reception and guided tour of the new exhibition “Holocaust by Bullets: Yahad – In Unum, 10 Years of Investigation.”

Known as the “Holocaust by Bullets,” the majority of the systematic killing of Jews and Roma took place after the 1941 invasion of the former Soviet Union and continued until 1944. The form of genocide detailed by Yahad – In Unum’s exhibition is unlike any other study of genocidal activity ever conducted and presented.

Yahad – In Unum Research Director Patrice Bensimon and Research Fellow Marie Moutier will lead a talk and tour of the exhibition.

Bensimon recently returned from a research trip to investigate the sites of mass executions in Russia. Since 2004, the organization has identified over 1,4000 execution sites and interviewed close to 4,000 witnesses in 8 countries.

In the exhibition, Yahad – In Unum presents its painstaking 10 years of research in a succinct yet appropriate manner allowing the visitor to uncover, step-by-step, the crime committed against Jews and Roma by the Nazi killing units, their Axis supporters, and local collaborators in Eastern Europe.

Mass killings in places such as Cambodia, Darfur, the Balkans and Syria are modeled after what Yahad’s founder Father Patrick Desbois calls the archetype of these horrors – those village-by-village, on site massacres – perpetrated by the Nazis and their collaborators.

The program is part of the Museum’s Genocide and Human Rights Awareness Movement (GHRAM) and is presented in partnership with the Saint Leo University Center for Catholic-Jewish Studies.

The program is free and open to the public, and is part of the Museum’s Genocide and Human Rights Awareness Movement. Presented in partnership with the Saint Leo University Center for Catholic-Jewish Studies.

The exhibition is on display May 19 – July 19, 2015.

The Florida Holocaust Museum’s Curator of Education & Director of Research Urszula Szczepinska was invited by Yahad – In Unum to create a study guide to be used worldwide in conjunction with the exhibition. Click here to read the entire study guide, available online.
