Content: As soon as nazi invaders were driven out of the Ukrainian territory, the first attempts to commemorate the Holocaust began. Subsequently, at the state level, this memory was manipulated, distorted and harassed. So did ist carriers. However, at the level of specific individuals, families, villages and towns, often contrary to unofficial prohibitions, they remembered their Jewish neighbors. And they found opportunities to express this memory in specific actions and signs. With the gain of independence, the situation reached a new dimension, but the picture of memory still depended and depends on single people and their stories.
The webinar looked at examples that differ from the general context and show how important personal stories and actions of each individual are.
