Holocaust in the Ukraine
B. M. Zabarko
Vallentine Mitchell, 2005 - Biography & Autobiography - 394 pages
The Nazis and their collaborators murdered 1.5 million Jews in the Ukraine. But, for a long time the subject of the Holocaust was a forbidden subject not only in the USSR but throughout the socialist bloc. It has only recently become a respectable research topic. This is a collection of 86 personal testimonies from survivors of the Shoah in the Ukraine. The objective of the book is not to relate historical facts and data but to relate a story of the inhumane experiences of people who were destined to die but managed to survive. The idea for the book was stimulated by Zabarko's participation in a project (organized in 1994 by the Documentation Centre of Yale University) to collect audio and video testimonies of Holocaust survivors from the Ukraine.
