Strasbourg, 25 January 2013 – The ceremony marking the International Day in memory of the victims of the Holocaust, will take place starting at 2.45 pm on the forecourt of the Palais de l’Europe.

 

On 27 January, a conference "La Shoah par balles" by Pierre-Philippe Preux, organised by The Centre européen du résistant déporté and the Council of Europe, will take place at 2 pm at the Council of Europe’s European Youth Centre in Strasbourg.

 

The conference will cast light on a still little-known aspect of the Holocaust, the murders between 1941 and 1944 of almost one and a half million Jews from Ukraine who were shot by Einsatzgruppen (mobile execution units) of the Waffen SS, the German police and East European collaborators.
