Abstract

Ukraine was once a centre of East European Jewish life. Most Ukrainian
Jews were killed during the Holocaust. Jewish culture in Ukraine perished
with them. In the Soviet Union, that culture slipped into oblivion. While
Ukraine’s official politics of remembrance omits the country’s Jewish heritage,
private individuals and organisations are trying to embed Jewish culture
and history as a part of Ukrainian identity in the public consciousness.
This is a painful process: It demands that Ukrainians recognise their share
of the responsibility in the annihilation of the Jews in their country.
