The Holocaust in Southern Ukraine: The Response of the Rescued Jews of Kalinindorf District after the German Occupation


This article is devoted to the history of the Holocaust in Southern Ukraine. During the interwar period a community of Jewish farmers, who lived in a rural area within the Jewish national districts, was established in this region. During the Second World War these people ended up in a variety of circumstances.

The article analyzes variations in the behavior of rescued Jews after their return to the now-liberated places where they had resided prior to the war.
