Holocaust survivor Roman Schwarzman
(In Russian with English transcript below)
On 20–21 October 2022, the Ukrainian Jewish Encounter joined the Atlantic Council and the Raoul Wallenberg Centre for Human Rights as co-sponsors of an international conference in Berlin called "Russia's War Against Ukraine."
Roman Schwarzman, a 92-year-old Holocaust survivor from Odesa, presented a moving address and spoke eloquently about Ukraine's respect for its Jewish minority. He declared he was twice the victim of fascist threats to his life, first from the Nazis and then the Russians.
The event was hosted by Germany's Institute for Liberal Modernity (LibMod-Zentrum Liberale Moderne) and was held at the Allianz Forum, located next to Berlin's famed Brandenburg Gate.
