Patrick Desbois

Founder, Yahad in Unum

A Roman Catholic Priest, Desbois has dedicated his life to researching the Holocaust, fighting anti-Semitism and furthering relations between Catholics and Jews. In 2004 he helped found Yahad-In Unum, a project whose mission it is to investigate the mass executions of Jews and Roma in the Ukraine and Belarus between 1941 and 1944. He has located the graves of more than 1 million Jews throughout Eastern Europe and interviewed scores of witnesses in an effort to preserve the memory of the many forgotten Jews of Eastern Europe.
