Now available with English captions: Presentation of Yuriy Skira’s Book “Beckoned”
Ukrainian Jewish Encounter (UJE) is a Canadian philanthropic organization that has been working since 2008 to strengthen relations between our two peoples. This year marks the sixth time we are presenting our organization’s initiatives and projects to the participants and visitors of the 26 BookForum in Lviv, and, in the interests of a broader international dialogue, supporting discussions around books that reinforce and affirm the values we disseminate.
On 19 September 2019, the 26 BookForum featured a presentation of the Ukrainian-language book Beckoned: Studite Monks and the Holocaust, written by Yuriy Skira, head of the Center for Study of the Ukrainian-Polish-Slovak Border at the Ukrainian Catholic University in Lviv. The book was published by Ukraine’s “Dukh i Litra.” The moderator was Anastasia Nehrutska, with the participation of Andriy Pavlyshyn. (The presentation was in Ukrainian, with English-language captions available).
