The Sam and Frances Fried Holocaust and Genocide Academy partners with Yahad-In Unum (Together in One) to bring a Holocaust by Bullets exhibit to UNO's Criss Library, January - March 2019. Father Patrick Desbois will speak on Thursday, March 28, at 7:00 p.m. at the Strauss Performing Arts Center and a two-day workshop with Yahad-In Unum will be held at Criss Library Thursday, March 28, and Friday, March 29.
In 2004, Father Patrick Desbois began a quest for a fuller truth of the Nazi massacre of Jews in Eastern Europe.
Commonly, mention of the Holocaust evokes images of concentration camps, but Desbois is bringing to light new images of entire Jewish populations herded directly from their homes to nearby mass graves for execution by bullet.
The graves were not marked, but there were witnesses, neighbors, many times children, witnesses now in their eighties and nineties. Desbois founded Yahad-In Unum with a mission to talk to the witnesses, to mark the graves, to write this history.
