Yahad – In Unum travelled to Denver in November for the very first Holocaust by Bullets Education Week.
This is the first time such an event has taken place in the United States and was a big step towards establishing Yahad – In Unum as a primary Holocaust educator and source of pedagogical material in the region. The event consisted of a series of conferences, teachers seminars and the traveling "Holocaust by Bullets" exhibition at the Temple Sinai.
The most notable of the events was a conference by Yahad's Patrick Desbois and renowned CBS journalist Lara Logan at the History Colorado Center. The two have previously linked up for several interviews and short documentaries, with Lara being a patron of Yahad's work. Patrick also gave a talk at the Temple Sinai as part of the opening of the "Holocaust by Bullets" exhibition. The event was made possible with the support of the Colorado Holocaust Educators, with special thanks to Todd and Ann.
