About The Holocaust by Bullets Exhibit


The Holocaust by Bullets Exhibit focuses on the history of the Holocaust by Bullets--the mass shootings of Jews and others that took place throughout Eastern Europe by the Nazi mobile killing units from 1941 to 1944--and the mechanisms of mass violence generally. It pays homage to the memories of the victims while seeking to promote a proactive movement against genocide.
