Episode Summary

EDIT
An archeological excavation in the Lithuanian city of Vilnius, which was an important Jewish center until the Nazis began a "Holocaust by bullets" in 1941, unearths a 100-foot escape tunnel used by 12 shackled Jews on the last night of Passover in 1944. Descendants of those survivors are interviewed, as are Holocaust survivors who lived in Vilnius. The excavation also explores the mass burial pits at the Ponar execution camp and the destroyed Great Synagogue, which dated to the 16th century.moreless
