Holocaust by Bullets Exhibit Reception and Lecture, Sept. 10

On display September 10 – December 17, 2017


The NSU Alvin Sherman Library hosts the opening of the internationally recognized “Holocaust by Bullets Exhibit”, September 10, 2017 at 10 am on the Second Floor, Cotilla Gallery. At 11:00 am guests will be treated to a thought provoking lecture by Ewa Schaller, Program Director at American Friends of Yahad-In Unum and Jason O’Connor, Ph.D. candidate in Comparative Studies at Florida Atlantic University. The event is free but reservations are requested, or 954-262-4578.

The Exhibit  features  ten  years  of  field  investigations  in  the  former  Soviet  Union  by  Yahad – In  Unum. Yahad – In Unum, founded by French Catholic Priest Father Patrick Desbois, presents its painstaking research in a succinct yet approachable manner that enables the visitor to uncover, stepbystep, the crime committed against Jews and Roma by the Nazi killing units.

Known as the “Holocaust by Bullets”, the systematic  killing  of  all  Jews  started  before  the  creation  of  concentration  camps  and  continued  until  WWII‘s end throughout the exSoviet Union from 1942 to 1944.  The exhibit gives viewers a chance to learn about this lesserknown side of the Holocaust, through eyewitness testimonies, photographs, and maps and  presents  Yahad’s  identification  of  five  steps  of  the  crime  that  took  place  almost  systematically for every mass killing throughout Eastern Europe leading up to the executions—the arrest, the road, the undressing, the shooting, and after the executions, the looting.
