“Jewish Studies and Holocaust Scholarship in Ukraine: Past, Present, and Uncertain Future: A Conversation with Scholar and War Refugee Dr. Yuri Radchenko”


Join us for a special conversation with Dr. Yuri Radchenko, who will join us virtually from Chernivtsi, Ukraine. Born in Kharkiv in 1986, Dr. Radchenko holds a Ph.D in History from Kharkiv National University. The author of over 30 articles on the history of the Holocaust in Kharkiv and the Ukrainian-Russian borderlands, Dr. Radchenko has held research fellowships in Vienna, Warsaw, Toronto, Jerusalem, and elsewhere. When the Russian invasion began he fled Kharkiv and is currently displaced internally in Chernivtsi, in western Ukraine. Dr. Radchenko will discuss his path in Jewish Studies and Holocaust research in Ukraine; how Ukraine’s scholars, universities, libraries, and archives have been impacted by the war; and how the future remains uncertain.
