Descrizione

The poignant story of how a Catholic priest uncovered the truth behind the murder of one and a half million Ukrainian Jews

Father Patrick Desbois documents the daunting task of identifying and examining all the sites where Jews were exterminated by Nazi mobile units in the Ukraine in WWII. Using innovative methodology, interviews, and ballistic evidence, he has determined the location of many mass gravesites with the goal of providing proper burials for the victims of the forgotten Ukrainian Holocaust.

Compiling new archival material and many eye-witness accounts, Desbois has put together the first definitive account of one of World War II's bloodiest chapters. Published with the support of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

"[T]his modest Roman Catholic priest from Paris, without using much more than his calm voice and Roman collar, has shattered the silence surrounding a largely untold chapter of the Holocaust." --The Chicago Tribune

Claudius, my grandfather, was a farmer and a poultry provider for my parents' cheese and poultry shop. Every morning at dawn he set out on the roads leading to the villages of central Bresse in a little gray truck with empty wooden cages strapped to it. Every day he traveled to a different village, where the weekly market was held. People came to buy chickens, ducks, turkeys, pigeons, rabbits, eggs, and butter from the farmers. For me the days of the week corresponded to the names of the villages where the markets were held: Wednesday, Saint-Martin; Thursday, Saint-Germain-du-Plain; Friday, Mervans; and so

    Although the Holocaust has been written about for many years, I am still shocked when I read about new atrocities that have been uncovered. How do seemingly ordinary people get caught up in these kinds of actions? I continue to read Holocaust stories to try to find the answer. The only answer that is forthcoming is in the documentary Shoah, in which a Holocaust scholar said : For thousands of years, the Jews were told "you can not live here." Nazi Germany took it one step farther and said "you can not live."
