COMMENTS: The Grave was Moving
Ann Curry, newscaster on NBC's Today, crossed over to Nightly News to offer an In Depth profile of the Rev Patrick Desbois, a Roman Catholic priest affiliated with the Shoah Museum in Paris. Desbois has conducted an oral history of the Nazi genocide of Jews outside concentration camps in the rural communities of Ukraine. He estimated that mass graves in the countryside account for a previously undocumented one million extra deaths. Curry showed clips of the oral history by surviving peasants who were child eyewitnesses to the slaughter. "Hundreds of thousands were systematically shot. To save bullets, eyewitnesses said, some were forced into graves alive. This man is telling you that the grave was moving."
