Dallas Holocaust Museum presents Holocaust By Bullets opening reception
Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance will open its new special exhibit, Holocaust by Bullets, Yahad-In Unum - 10 Years of Investigations, with a reception and lecture. The exhibit will run through December 31, 2015.
Based on 10 years of research and investigation by the French organization Yahad-In Unum, the exhibit chronicles the lesser-known side of the Holocaust in which more than 2 million Jews were gunned down and left in unmarked mass graves across Ukraine, Belarus and Russia.
The systematic killing of all Jews and Roma started before the creation of concentration camps and gas chambers and continued until WWII‘s end. More than 1,700 mass killing sites in Europe have been identified. Modern-day massacres in areas such as Cambodia, Rwanda, Darfur, the Balkans and Syria may be modeled on these village-by-village, on-site massacres perpetrated by the Nazis and others.
The exhibit is presented in English and Spanish.
