Event Details

As part of its Jan Karski Institute for Holocaust Education's summer certificate program for high school educators, the Program for Jewish Civilization invites the public to join us for a presentation by Father Patrick Desbois. 

Father Patrick Desbois president of the Yahad–In Unum Association, has devoted his life to confronting antisemitism and furthering Catholic-Jewish understanding. Since 2001, he has led a truly historic undertaking.Working closely with United States Holocaust Memorial Museum staff and using the Museum’s archives to aid his search, he and his team have crisscrossed the countryside in Ukraine in an effort to locate every mass grave and site at which Jews were killed during the Holocaust. To date, they have identified 800 of an estimated 2,000 such locations. They are also collecting artifacts and, most significantly, recording video testimonies from eyewitnesses—many of whom are speaking publicly for the first time. These invaluable testimonies will become part of the Museum’s permanent collection. Father Desbois’ extraordinary work to preserve the memory of Ukraine’s former Jewish community and to advance understanding of the crimes committed there during the Holocaust has received international media attention.
