The Holocaust in Ukraine

Once again Ukraine finds itself in a state of revolution and war, and the outcome may affect all Europe and the United States. As accomplished author and Ukraine scholar Wendy Lower notes, the conflict over who controls Ukraine’s future is also a conflict over the interpretation of its history. With the intent of informing, and perhaps narrowing the gap between historical facts and inflammatory rhetoric, the editors of Holocaust and Genocide Studies have issued this special edition on the Holocaust in Ukraine, featuring selected articles from the past ten years. Read as a whole, these essays begin to fill in the bigger picture of the history of Holocaust in Ukraine and the Nazi occupation.
