Holocaust By Bullets
September 10, 2015 - December 31, 2015
Based on 10 years of research and investigation by the French organization Yahad-In Unum, the exhibition chronicles the lesser-known side of the Holocaust in which more than 2 million Jews were gunned down and left in unmarked mass graves across Ukraine, Belarus and Russia.
The systematic killing of all Jews and Roma started before the creation of death camps and gas chambers and continued until WWII‘s end. More than 1,700 mass killing sites in Europe have been identified. Modern-day massacres in areas such as Cambodia, Rwanda, Darfur, the Balkans and Syria may be modeled on these village-by-village, on-site massacres perpetrated by the Nazis and others.
