“The Ukrainian Jewish Family Album” in Poltava, Ukraine

From March 19 to 29 our exhibition „The Ukrainian Jewish Family Album“ was on display at the Poltava Law College of the Yaroslav Mudryi National Law University. Yuliya Kochuk organized a fantastic event with an introduction to Centropa‘s educational program, lectures, screening of our short film „Return to Rivne“ as well as discussion and reflection sessions. 7 educational institutions visited the exhibition, overall more than 800 people.

We are especially thankful to Kateryna Gorodnicha, Vladislava Oliynik, Darina Lopulyak, Yelizaveta Soroka and Yuliya Melnikova who guided other students through the exhibition. And last but not least, a huge THANK YOU to Yuliya Kochuk! We are looking forward to meeting you in Odessa!

„The Moldovan Jewish Family Album“ traveled to Vîșcăuți

Where would we be without teachers like Natalia Balan from Susleni, Moldova? Natalia, a history and civic education teacher, organized the second presentation of „The Moldovan Jewish Family Album“ within three weeks. This time she brought our exhibition to the Vîșcăuți branch of LT „Vasile Lupu“ from March 20 to 27.

We are more than happy to meet you at our Trans.History seminar in Odessa, Natalia!

New documentary short film released

In co-operation with Centropa and with support from the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, our dear partners from NGO «CSMP «Mnemonics» recently published the documentary short film „Doomed: the History of the Rivne Ghetto“ where Jews were forced to live a deprived life before being shot in a stone quarry in July 1942.

We will present the film during our upcoming Trans.History seminar in Odessa and it is already available in Ukrainian with English subtitles (can be switched on in the Youtube player) on the Trans.History webpage.

„Doomed: the History of the Rivne Ghetto“ has already been tested and evaluated in class.
