Holocaust by Bullets

Opens to the public July 26, 2019
The Holocaust by Bullets was the systematic killing of Jews that started before the creation of concentration camps in the ex-Soviet Union and continued until WWII’s end. Yahad-In Unum (“together” in Hebrew and Latin) is a Paris-based non-profit organization established in 2004 by Father Patrick Desbois and dedicated to systematically identifying and documenting sites of Jewish and Roma mass executions by Nazi mobile-killing units in Eastern Europe during World War II.

Holocaust by Bullets presents the results of Yahad-In Unum’s research investigations in the ex-Soviet Union. It also underscores the “Holocaust by Bullets” as a precursor and model for mass crimes today. The exhibit showcases the painstaking research–succinctly yet approachable–to enable the visitor to uncover, step-by-step, the crime committed against Jews and Roma by the Nazi killing units. It gives viewers a chance to learn about this lesser-known side of the Holocaust, through eyewitness testimonies, photographs, and quotes
