The Holocaust in Ukraine. New Perspectives on the Evils of the 20th Century
The objective of this conference is to foster renewed knowledge and open discussion on tragic and insufficiently-studied events that weigh heavily upon Ukrainian-Jewish relations both within Ukraine and abroad.
The papers will focus on understanding the facts of the German occupation (1941-1944), but also on analyzing these facts in a broader, historical context, including the
history of the Jews in Ukraine before and after the Shoah and the overall history of resistance, collaboration, and crimes across occupied Europe during the Second World War.
The conference will also examine controversial and painful issues such as local collaborators who participated in the extermination of the Jews or the attitudes of resistance fighters – both nationalist and communist – towards the Holocaust.
This symposium is organised by Pantheon-Assas University and Euroforum (European Forum for Ukraine) with the support of the Fondation pour la Mémoire de la Shoah.
