A conference 'The Holocaust by bullets" by Pierre-Philippe Preux, organised by The Centre européen du résistant déporté and the Council of Europe, took place on the 27th January 2013 at the Council of Europe’s European Youth Centre in Strasbourg.

This conference casted 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.

The commemorative event began with a song performed by pupils from Landau (Germany), one of the schools who participate on a regular basis to the activities of the Association Regards d'Enfants.

Pierre-Philippe Preux’s lecture was followed by a guided tour of two exhibitions: l’Art et la Shoah by Dr Francine Mayran, an artist and psychiatrist, and l’Enfant cachée, by Hellen Kaufmann, from the association Anonymes, Justes et persécutés durant la période nazie (AJPN).

Speech by Mrs Gabriella Battaini Dragoni, Deputy Secretary General of the Council of Europe
