From April 24 to May 1, 2014, visitors to the exhibition “The Holocaust by Bullets” at Ottawa’s St. Paul University will have the opportunity to learn about this little-known side of the Holocaust, how it has tragically become a model for genocide in the modern world, and what can be done to stop the chain of atrocious violence now and in the future.
Ottawa, Canada, April 24, 2014: From April 24 through May 1, 2014, visitors to the exposition “The Holocaust by Bullets” will have the opportunity to learn about a poorly-known part of the Holocaust as documented by nearly ten years of meticulous research by Yahad – In Unum. Hosted by The Faculty of Theology at St. Paul University in Ottawa, people will equally see what is being done to help prevent such atrocities from happening again.
“From 1941 through 1944, mobile death squads of Nazis and their allies mercilessly gunned down Jews, Roma and many others victims in Eastern Europe,” notes Marco Gonzalez, Director of Yahad – In Unum. “Yahad – In Unum is a non-profit organization dedicated to locating, investigating, and preserving each and every one of the mass graves where these atrocities were committed. The organization works tirelessly to provide respectful remembrance of the victims and to educate others by furnishing irrefutable evidence of the facts in order to debunk Holocaust deniers.”
Founded in 2004 by Catholic and Jewish spiritual leaders, Yahad – In Unum’s name combines the Hebrew word - Yahad, meaning “together,” with the Latin phrase In Unum, meaning “in one.” Today, the organization is led by Father Patrick Desbois who has received numerous commendations for his tireless work and who is supported by a world class administrative and scientific team of experts in various fields including history, anthropology and human sciences.
During the “Holocaust by Bullets” exposition in Ottawa, Fr. Desbois will participate in the following events organized by the Jewish Federation of Ottawa:
- Yom HaShoah Commemoration - Breaking the Walls of Indifference on April 27, 2014 at 7 PM
- Panel Discussion on Genocide - Duty to Remember and the Rebuilding of Nations on April 28, 2014 at 5:30PM
“Sadly, ‘The Holocaust by Bullets’ has become a model for the perpetrators of modern-day genocide,” states Fr. Desbois, President of Yahad – In Unum. “This further emphasizes the importance of Yahad – In Unum’s mission to incontestably document these crimes and to educate others about the horrors of genocide in order to keep history from repeating itself.”
