Father Patrick DesBois will be in Southwest Florida later this week. He’s the author of “Holocaust by Bullets: a Priest’s Journey to Uncover the Truth Behind the Murder of 1.5 Million Jews”. He’s also the founder of Yur-ad un Unum – which means “together” in Hebrew and Latin.
When most of us think of the Holocaust it’s of concentration camps. But DesBois’ journey has led him to remote villages in parts Poland and the former Soviet Union.
His grandfather was imprisoned near one of those villages during the war. He told DesBois the camp was bad but what happened outside was even worse. He would not say more. To learn the truth the Priest went to the village near the camp that had held his grandfather and arranged a meeting with the mayor.
