Ukraine in Context

Jewish Perspectives on Ukraine, Present and Past – Mini Interviews

Ukraine was once home to the second-largest Jewish population in Europe, including countless communities shaped by many influences: from the Czarist Empire in the east to the Hapsburg Monarchy in the West, from secular modernity in the major cities to the abiding traditions of the shtetl; from the free port of Odesa on the Black sea to the intellectual metro­polis of Kharkiv.

Alongside the discussion series taking place in person at the museum, this online feature is gradually exploring questions relevant to Ukraine past and present from a Jewish perspective.
