Prof. Zvi Gitelman, Professor Emeritus of Judaic Studies and Political Science, will discuss his in-progress book, a textbook on modern Ukrainian Jewish history intended for use in Ukrainian higher educational institutions. Russia’s attack on Ukraine has evoked much sympathy for Ukrainians, including by Jews. Yet, for 400 years there has been great tension between Ukrainians and Jews, including massive pogroms in 1918-21 and some Ukrainians’ collaboration with the Nazis in World War Two. This makes the task of writing a textbook for Ukrainian higher educational institutions an exercise in the politics of history. How does one approach such a politicized, controversial enterprise?

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A with the audience. Zoom link here. Please register here.  Open to the public. Registration requested but not required.
