"I learned the Holocaust isn't one story of how six million people perished; it's six million individual stories."

Please join us as explorer Christos Nicola recounts the remarkable story of finding the cave in which a group of Ukrainian Jews spent more than 500 days hiding from Nazis during World War II.

To date, he has located 14 of the original 38 cave dwellers, and co-authored the book, the Secret of Priest's Grotto, that led to the making of No Place On Earth, a documentary about their experiences.

In 2013 Nicola received the prestigious Citation of Merit Award from the Explorer's Club for his work in bringing the Priest's Grotto story to light.
