‘Holocaust by Bullets’ talk is May 20

Urszula Szczepinska, curator of education and director of research for the Florida Holocaust Museum, will speak at the museum on Sunday, May 20, about researching names of victims of what is known as the “Holocaust by Bullets” – the mass shootings of more than 2 million Jews by the Nazis and their collaborators during the Holocaust.

Szczepinska will present online resources that have the most updated information based on the latest historical research. She will also demonstrate how to use archival databases to look for information about individuals who perished in the Holocaust by Bullets. Retrieving identities of individual victims is one of the most significant memorial projects for the post-Holocaust generations.

Her appearance is jointly sponsored by the museum and the Jewish Genealogical Society of Tampa Bay. Members of both organizations as well as anyone interested in Jewish Genealogy and Holocaust research may attend the program at no charge. The museum is located at 55 fifth St. S., St. Petersburg.

Szczepinska is the author of a study guide for the traveling exhibition on the Holocaust by Bullets by the French organization Yahad-In Unum, which works to locate execution sites and mass graves. She has taught the subject to various audiences, including honors classes at USF Tampa.

Registration for the event begins at the museum at 1:30 p.m. and the program starts at 2 p.m. Following the talk, an optional self-guided tour of the museum will be offered at no charge to members of either sponsoring organizations. Non-members may tour at a reduced charge of $9.

For those planning to include a tour of the museum, advanced registration is requested by calling Sally Israel at (727) 343- 1652.
