Representatives from the Chief Rabbinate of Israel, prelates from the Vatican, and nine ambassadors to the Holy See came to the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome to listen to a French Catholic priest, Father Patrick Desbois. They heard him describe how he has spent the last decade criss-crossing Ukraine to find the truth about how 1.5 million Ukrainian Jews were shot dead and buried in mass graves during the Second World War.
