Before It’s Too Late: The Search for Mass Graves of Jews Massacred by Nazis in the Ukraine
1.25 million Jews were killed by the Einsatzgruppen (Nazi mobile killing units) in the Soviet Union and disposed of in mass graves between June 1941 and spring 1943. The locations of the majority of graves are unknown. Documentation of the massacres is sparse. Father Patrick Desbois, a Catholic priest in Paris, has taken on the mission of locating and documenting all mass graves in the Ukraine and securing tangible proof of the genocide.
Aryeh Rubin of Targum Shlishi is spearheading an informational and fundraising effort to support Father Desbois.
