Lithuania Holocaust Escape Tunnel

sunset bw

The New York Times published this story. “A team of archaeologists and mapmakers say they have uncovered a forgotten tunnel that 80 Jews dug largely by hand as they tried to escape from a Nazi extermination site in Lithuania about 70 years ago.” Read the rest of the story at this NY Times link.

This article reminds me of Father Patrick Dubois and his extensive research into the Holocaust and genocidal practices. His book, The Holocaust by Bullets: A Priest’s Journey to Uncover the Truth Behind the Murder of 1.5 Million Jews, is extremely compelling and important.

Here is a link to a New York Times article regarding Father Patrick Dubois and his unending endeavors.

Let us always remember the lives of those who came before us.

Shabbat Shalom!

  1. Lorri, thank you so much for this extremely enlightening article about this priest’s interviews with survivors. I had read about the tunnel just a day or two ago, and read Babi Yar many years ago when it was published. How sad to also hear that Elie Wiesel has just died. Your post is so informative and so timely!

  2. Thank you for posting. My family is from Lithuania. Some were buried there. Thank you again.
