Holocaust Memory in Ukraine: Discourses of the Urban Memorial Landscapes


The project focuses on examining the key memorial transformations that took place on the sites of the Holocaust in Ukrainian cities from the end of the Nazi occupation to the present, as well as to analyse the extent to which these territories have become places of Holocaust memory. The project aims to describe the mechanisms of embedding this memory into the symbolic space cities (Dnipro, Kharkiv, Odesa). These cities were chosen for the study because they are the most sensitive to Holocaust memorial culture and public Holocaust museums function here. This is remarkable, since there is still no national Holocaust Museum in Ukraine. The project justifies the need to apply cultural analysis to each place of memory.
