Research seminar “Holocaust and mass violence on the Ukrainian territories in the first half of the XX century
On the 9-11 of May 2019 research and methodological seminar “Holocaust and mass violence on the Ukrainian territories in the first half of the XX century” for the teachers of history from Lviv, Ternopil, Ivano-Frankivsk, Rivne and Volyn regions took place in Lviv. The seminar was carried out by the Ukrainian Center for Holocaust Studies together with M?morial de la Shoah (Paris) and Memorial Museum of Totalitarian Regimes “Territory of Terror” (Lviv).
For us it is important that the seminar took place during the days dedicated to the memory of victims of the Second World War, the victory of the Nazism and the end of the war in Europe.
The seminar is being held in the historical place of the difficult memory - the “Territory of Terror” Museum, which stands in the area of the former Lviv ghetto, the places of the Nazi crimes against the local Jewish community. This is also the place where a transit prison № 25 functioned. After the war tens of thousands of people of various ethnic backgrounds were deported by the Stalinist authorities from this prison.
Today and during the other days of the seminar the participants will have a great chance to attend comprehensive lectures by well-known Ukrainian, French and German historians. Among them are Oleksandr Lysenko, Oleksandr Zaitsev, Marta Havryshko, Andrii Usach, Iryna Sklokina, Volodymyr Sklokin, Anatolii Podolskyi, Annette Wieviorka, Gr?goire Kauffmann, Tal Bruttmann, Christophe Tarricone, Dieter Pohl
Our research and methodological seminar is a contribution in memorialization and protection of victims’ memory who suffered from the totalitarian regimes of the last century on the Ukrainian territories.
We remember and therefore we win!
