Holocaust exhibit opens in Kiev

Holocaust exhibit opens in Kiev

An exhibition focused on the Nazi massacre of 1.4 million Jews in Soviet Ukraine has opened in the Ukrainian capital.
The exhibit unveiled Thursday is based on the work of French Catholic Priest Patrick Desbois who has been searching for Jewish mass graves and interviewing Holocaust witnesses in Ukraine.
Desbois says the goal of his work is to honor the victims, establish the truth and prevent future genocides.
Historians say some 1.4 million of Soviet Ukraine's 2.4 million Jews were executed, starved to death or died of disease during World War II. Their remains are strewn around the country in common graves, many of them ignored and unmarked.
