Phoenix Holocaust Association

Phoenix Holocaust Association is a partnership of Holocaust survivors, their descendants and the larger community. We honor the memory and legacy of the survivors and victims, promote awareness of the Holocaust, provide education of this and other genocides, and contribute to tikkun olam, repair of the world.

In 2020, the Phoenix Holocaust Association, along with the participation of other valley organizations, will bring Holocaust by Bullets to our community.  This program is based on the work of Father Patrick Desbois and Yahad-In Unum, the global humanitarian organization he founded to collect evidence of the massacres committed by German mobile killing units – the Einsatzgruppen, in Eastern Europe during WWII.

The Holocaust by Bullets program features a 2,000-square foot exhibition that is free and open to students and the general public as well as book talks, field trips, films, lectures, teacher training and other events that will take place around the Valley.  The program will culminate with a key note speech by Father Desbois on April 20, 2020.
