While in residence at the Center, Mr. Terry conducted research for “Einsatzgruppe B in Russia and Belorussia” and thus helped to fill a major gap in the historical record. He studied the Einsatzgruppen’s composition, deployment and directives, and closely examined the responsibility of Einsatzgruppe B in the murder of Soviet Jews.
