Since 2001, Desbois, a French Catholic priest and president of the Yahad-In Unum Foundation, has identified 2,000 mass graves and 800 extermination sites of Jews and Roma in Eastern Europe. His most recent findings were presented before the United Nations last fall. To preserve the memory of these atrocities, Desbois has filmed interviews with 2,500 eyewitnesses, some of which will be shown as part of the lecture. “Yahad-In Unum” signifies “unity” in both Hebrew and Latin.
