“The Politics of Memory in Contemporary Ukraine and Antisemitism”
How have the official politics of memory in Ukraine changed since 1991? What is the role of the “Jewish question” in it? How have society and the state remembered and/or recalled the Holocaust? How did radical right groups react to these processes? How frequent are cases of antisemitism caused by official or unofficial politics of memory? What is their nature?
Yaroslav Hrytsak is a Ukrainian historian, professor at the Ukrainian Catholic University, Director of the Institute for Historical Studies at Ivan Franko Lviv National University. He is the author of numerous articles in Ukrainian and foreign media and of such books as “Essays in Ukrainian History: Making of Modern Ukrainian Nation” (1996, 2000, in Ukrainian), “Passions around Nationalism: Old History in a New Manner” (2004, 2011, in Ukrainian), “A Prophet in His Country.
