Between 1941 and 1944, almost 1.5 million Jews were murdered when Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union. Most were shot by mobile killing units consisting of German SS, army, police, and local collaborators. This exhibition presented the evidence, both physical and testimonial, gathered by Father Patrick Desbois and his team from Yahad-In Unum. Interviews with Ukrainian bystanders and witnesses, together with photographs, artifacts, and text panels, told the chilling story of Jewish victims – men, women, and children – who were executed near the places they lived, with their neighbors watching.
The Shooting of Jews in Ukraine: Holocaust by Bullets was originally created by the Mémorial de la Shoah, Paris and was presented at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in cooperation with Yahad-In Unum.
