Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 07, 2015
The world’s leading expert on the “Holocaust By Bullets” period of WWII, Father Patrick Desbois recently compared the actions of ISIS to perpetrators of the Jewish Holocaust in a recent interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes.” He compares the atrocities of Nazi Death Squads publicly executing Jews to the beheadings and other public mass murders committed by the ISIS terrorist group. Father Dubois notes that the only difference is that, now, the world sees it as it happens.
In the past decade, Father Dubois and his organization, Yahad-In Unum (YIU), have uncovered thousands of Nazi victim’s mass graves previously lost to the world. He has documented a vast amount of historical research on the “Holocaust by Bullets” that was previously hidden or unknown. While he continues his work, Father Dubois is teaching the lessons of the Holocaust and the “Disease” of genocid throughout the world through his book, museum exhibits, and public lectures.
Father Desbois is available for interview to speak to the following topics:
- How similar the pattern of ISIS is to the murderous tactics of the Nazi Party
- Why genocide is still very much a threat in today’s world
- His experiences touring the US with his museum exhibit “Holocaust by Bullets”
- The recent memorials for mass graves discovered by YIU
- The first showing of the “Holocaust by Bullets” museum exhibit in Lithuania – the fist time the exhibit has been shown in a country that actually experienced the crimes.
- The debut of the “Holocaust by Bullets” exhibit in South America
- How YIU has turned its attention to Guatemala to document similar human rights atrocities there.
