Join us for lightning of candles of remembrance, musical tributes and words of reflection by Father Patrick Desbois, president and co-founder of Yahad-In Unum. Over the past ten years, under the auspices of Yahad-In Unum, Father Desbois has interviewed more than 5,300 eyewitnesses to the murder of Jews and Roma during the Holocaust and has identified more than 2,100 execution sites in Eastern Europe. His book, The Holocaust by Bullets: A Priest’s Journey to Uncover the Truth Behind the Murder of 1.5 Million Jews, received the 2008 National Jewish Book Award.
