Speaker: Dr. Omer Bartov
On a personal quest to investigate the fate of his mother's hometown in eastern Galicia, Professor Bartov discovers that he must first grapple with the region's centuries-old interethnic relationships and conflicts. He finds that the newly independent Ukraine-with its ethnically cleansed and deeply anti-Semitic population--has recreated its past by suppressing all memory of its victims. In this lecture, Prof. Bartov will describe his research of Ukrainian towns and reconstruct the histories of the vibrant Jewish communities who once lived there.
