by learning from the past and educating in the present, we work to prevent genocide and mass killings in the future.
- Yahad-In Unum
Yahad-In Unum’s mission is “by learning from the past and educating in the present, we work to prevent genocide and mass killings in the future.”
Between 1.5 and 2 million Jews were executed from 1939 to 1943 in countries formerly part of the Soviet Union: Belarus; Lithuania; Moldova; Poland; Romania; Russia; and Ukraine. Their research is rooted in eyewitness accounts from individuals present during the mass shootings, who are now aging and whose historical perspective will no longer be available. Using these accounts with forensic evidence, the group identifies mass gravesites, collecting further evidence of the genocide.
