The Virginia Holocaust Museum along with Yahad In Unum present “Holocaust by Bullets In the Occupied Soviet Territories.” A 90 minute teacher webinar scheduled for November 7, 10am-11:30am.
What is Holocaust by Bullets?
On June 22, 1941, Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union. This act of war sounded the death bell for the Jewish populations of Eastern Europe. More than two million Jews were killed through the use of bullets by Nazi mobile-killing units and their collaborators. This practice of extermination has come to be designated as the “Holocaust by bullets” or “genocide by mass shooting.” The executioners massacred the victims in their villages, before the eyes of their neighbors.
- Short overview of the Holocaust by Bullets as a mobile and public crime
- Short overview of Yahad – In Unum’s investigative methodology
- Viewing and analysis of an excerpt from an eyewitness testimony
- Analysis of the five steps of the crime typical of nearly every mass-shooting perpetrated by the Einsatzgruppen in the former Soviet Union
