Ukraine: Holocaust and Memory. Panel discussion and artwork display in London

Between 1939 and 1945, over a million Jews were murdered in the “Holocaust by Bullets” in Ukraine. During this period, three occupations swept the country: Soviet, Nazi and Soviet again, leading to between 8 and 10 million people, including military and civilians, perishing. Many Ukrainians aided the Holocaust, but many also risked their lives to save Jewish families.

On January 26 at London’s Jewish Museum Dr. Sofiya Dyak, Director of the Lviv Centre of Urban History; Ukrainian contemporary artist Nikita Kadan; and Professor Philippe Sands Professor of Law and Director of the Centre on International Courts and Tribunals and award-winning writer discussed the evolution of the practices of Holocaust remembrance and its public discourse in Ukraine.
