Those Who Sacrifice Liberty For Security Deserve Neither (Benjamin Franklin)

Priest uncovering beginnings of Final Solution

with 3 comments

a Catholic priest named Patrick Desbois (..) says he has interviewed more than 800 eyewitnesses and pinpointed hundreds of mass graves strewn around dusty fields in the former Soviet Union. The result is a book, “The Holocaust by Bullets,” and an exhibition through March 15 at New Yorks Museum of Jewish Heritage.

Brought to Ukraine by a twist of fate, Desbois has spent seven years trying to document the truth, honor the dead, relieve witnesses of their pain and guilt and prevent future acts of genocide.

Some 1.4 million of Soviet Ukraines 2.4 million Jews were executed, starved to death or died of disease during the war. Another 550,000-650,000 Soviet Jews were killed in Belarus and up to 140,000 in Russia, according to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. Most of the victims were women, children and the elderly.

It’s about time to speak about USSR’s crimes, mainly those committed by the Gulag’s administration and, yes, those against Jewish people living there.
