Community Yom Ha-Shoah

The Tulsa Council for Holocaust Education and the Tulsa City-County Library host the 21st Annual Yom Ha-Shoah Interfaith Holocaust Commemoration at 7:00 p.m. in the VanTrease Performing Arts Center at the Tulsa Community College Southeast Campus. The featured speaker will be Father Patrick Desbois, a Catholic priest and Vatican consultant, who is the founder and president of Yahad-In Unum, an international organization which has interviewed more than 5,300 eyewitnesses of Jewish and Romani executions by Nazi mobile units in Eastern Europe. In his 2008 National Jewish Book Award-winning The Holocaust by Bullets: A Priest’s Journey to Uncover the Truth Behind the Murder of 1.5 Million Jews, Desbois documented for the first time every execution site in the Ukraine. Desbois has been featured in several New York Times articles and has appeared on 60 Minutes for his work in Holocaust and genocide research.
