Yom Kippur Special: Catholic Priest Investigates “Forgotten” Holocaust

Description

Tonight marks the beginning of Yom Kippur, the Jewish ‘Day of Atonement.’ In honor of the reverent holiday, we bring you a unique story in Jewish history that would have been largely forgotten if not for a Catholic priest. Father Patrick Desbois spent over a decade traveling across Eastern Europe in search of mass graves used by Nazi Germany killing squads to bury some 2 million Jews — roughly a third of those who died during the Holocaust. We sit down with Desbois to talk about his work and his goal: to learn from the past and stop this kind of genocide from happening again.
