Join us for the FREE public reception and guided tour of the new exhibition "Holocaust by Bullets: Yahad – In Unum, 10 Years of Investigation."

Known as the “Holocaust by Bullets,” the majority of the systematic killing of Jews and Roma took place after the 1941 invasion of the former Soviet Union and continued until 1944. The form of genocide detailed by Yahad – In Unum’s exhibition is unlike any other study of genocidal activity ever conducted and presented.

Yahad – In Unum Research Director Patrice Bensimon and Research Fellow Marie Moutier will lead a talk and tour of the exhibition.

Bensimon recently returned from a research trip to investigate the sites of mass executions in Russia. Since 2004, the organization has identified over 1,4000 execution sites and interviewed close to 4,000 witnesses in 8 countries.

In the exhibition, Yahad – In Unum presents its painstaking 10 years of research in a succinct yet appropriate manner allowing the visitor to uncover, step-by-step, the crime committed against Jews and Roma by the Nazi killing units, their Axis supporters, and local collaborators in Eastern Europe.

Mass killings in places such as Cambodia, Darfur, the Balkans and Syria are modeled after what Yahad's founder Father Patrick Desbois calls the archetype of these horrors – those village-by-village, on site massacres – perpetrated by the Nazis and their collaborators.

June 11 at 6:30 p.m. at The FHM
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC 

The program is part of the Museum's Genocide and Human Rights Awareness Movement (GHRAM) and is presented in partnership with the Saint Leo University Center for Catholic-Jewish Studies.

Last year, we were able to raise over $7,000 to send Teaching Trunks free of charge to educators nationwide. This year's goal is $10,000 to cover the 2015-2016 school year's shipping costs and reach even more students. Go to http://igg.me/at/TrunksofHope2015/  to donate!

Great exhibits on the main floor, but the upper floor could definitely use some more substance rather than just some abstract installations of art. The original box train car that transported holocaust victims is definitely the centerpiece of this museum. This installation brings a sense of reality of the holocaust right to your own senses. Had to pay $16 to enter this museum, which is very expensive just like all of the other tourist traps in downtown St. Petersburg.

Gets right to your heart, the horrible suffering, the death of so many for such reasons.people have tried to say this never happened, but of course it happened. To see a family member killed to see a child, to wait in line when next it is your time, we must never allow something like this happen NEVER. God bless them all.

A museum everyone should see, interactive and deeply profound. But previous to entering visitors should ask if there would be tours during their visit. Our visit was ruined by loud tour guides with large groups in front and behind us. Anthony Dapolito Great Barrington, MA

Deeply moving, delicately detailed and worthy of international notice. I have visited several times and attended special events or symposiums and am always inspired to love my fellow man & woman. The collections are amazing and the special guests provide such an experience for living history. Everyone should visit at least once in their life.
