Magocsi at Tel Aviv's famed Sipur Pashut book store
Tel Aviv's famed Sipur Pashut — Independent Bookstore and Ukrainian Jewish Encounter (UJE) co-sponsored an event about the book "Jews and Ukrainians: A Millennium of Co-Existence" and Russia's unprovoked war against Ukraine on June 8, 2022.
On February 24, 2022, Russia launched a cruel war against Ukraine. President Vladimir Putin said his goal was to 'denazify' Ukraine. Paul Robert Magocsi, UJE Board Member, professor of history and political science, and one of the authors of the book "Jews and Ukrainians: A Millennium of Co-Existence," examined the Russian president's ill-founded allegations and presented how the stories of Ukrainians and Jews are incomplete without each other.
