Yahad In Unum
By learning from the past and educating in the present, we work to prevent genocide and mass killings in the future.
Yahad – In Unum combines the Hebrew word – Yahad, meaning “together,” with the Latin phrase In Unum, meaning “in one”.
Our organization seeks to unsilence a chapter of history that has remained silent for far too long. In the former Soviet Union, we seek out eyewitnesses to the executions of Jews and Roma as we work towards identifying each execution site and mass grave.
The surviving witnesses are in their 80’s and 90’s, and their first-person accounts of history will soon no longer be available.
The window of opportunity to collect the evidence is rapidly closing. Without eyewitness testimony, it will be impossible to identify the location of the mass graves and collect the evidence of the genocide.
