A public lecture by Patrice Bensimon, director of research at the Yahad—In Unum center in Paris.

Mr. Patrice Bensimon serves as research director for Yahad—In Unum. Currently, he is a Ph.D. candidate in history in the department of Jewish studies at L’École des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS) in Paris and is writing a thesis on “the Jewish sites of memory in post-Soviet Ukraine.” Yahad In Unum is the outgrowth of Father Patrick Desbois’ groundbreaking project to collect and archive the testimonies of thousands of witnesses to the Nazi execution of Ukrainian Jews during WWII. Over 14 years, the organization’s work expanded to other Eastern European countries, leading to the discovery of over 2,000 mass graves. Mr. Bensimon will discuss his experience gathering forensic evidence alongside Father Desbois.
