Holocausts by Bullets Exhibition @ Burton Barr Library
Feb 25 @ 9:00 am

The exhibition “Holocaust by Bullets 10 Years of Investigation” presents the results of Yahad-In Unum’s research in Eastern Europe.  It also underscores the “Holocaust by Bullets” as a precursor and model for mass murder crimes today. 

The exhibit showcases the painstaking research uncovering the step-by-step nature of the crimes committed against Jews and Roma by the Nazi killing units. 

The exhibition is built around the five steps of the crime identified by Yahad-In Unum researchers based on eyewitness accounts:

1. The Arrest

2. The Road

3. The Undressing

4. The Shooting

5. The Looting

The steps are described through quotes from eyewitness testimonies and through archival photographs. A short summary defining each step and highlighting the criminal nature of the Holocaust by Bullets are provided on a separate introductory panel.
