Father Patrick Desbois is a noted Holocaust and genocide researcher whose groundbreaking work exposed systematic Nazi killings in Eastern European villages. His work has been lauded by Pope Francis, and he is the recipient of France’s highest honor, the Légion d’honneur.
Father Desbois will talk about his research, which extends to investigating the genocide of Iraq’s Yazidi minority, and alarming anti-semitism trends in contemporary society.
The Catholic priest is a distinguished author, university professor, historian, forensic detective and world-renowned human-rights activist. He has dedicated his life to fighting the bigotry that fuels the disease of genocide and bridging the divide between faiths. His ongoing work brings closure to the victims and survivors of genocide and calls for legal justice for the perpetrators.
