Jews and Ukrainians: A Millennium of Co-Existence

Event date:
June 6, 2019 to June 6, 2019
Event location:
Jewish Community Centre London, 341-351 Finchley Road, London, NW3 6ET

There is much that Ukrainians do not know about Jews and that Jews do not know about Ukrainians. As a result, Jews and Ukrainians who care about their respective ancestral heritages often view each other through distorted stereotypes, misperceptions, and biases. Professor Paul Robert Magocsi will shed new light on controversial issues in Ukrainian-Jewish relations, including questions of anti-Semitism, and argue that cultural and historical experiences not only divided ethnic Ukrainians and Jews, but also brought them together.  Paul Robert Magocsi is a professor of history and political science at the University of Toronto, where since 1980 he has held the endowed John Yaremko Chair of Ukrainian Studies. He is the author of over 800 works, including 40 books primarily in the fields of political, cultural, and religious history, sociolinguistics, bibliography, cartography, immigration and ethnic studies.
