I was just catching up with a couple of back issues of TIME Magazine and came across THIS horrific piece about the massacre of Ukrainian Jews by the Nazis. It seems that the numbers have been dramatically underestimated. The article tells the story of a Catholic Priest, Patrick Desbois, who has made it is his life's work to identify the estimated 1800 or so mass graves located throughout various forests in the country. It had been thought that 400,000 ukrainian Jews were killed in concentration camps and 1.1 million shot at close range. The numbers could well be far higher.
It's a fascinating and deeply horrifying story. And it only happened fewer than seventy years ago.
