On the eve of the Nazi invasion of the USSR in 1941, Ukraine was home tothe largest Jewish community in Europe. Between 1941 and 1944, some 1.4 million Jewswere killed there, and one of the most important centers of Jewish life wasdestroyed. Yet, little is known about this chapter of Holocaust history. Drawing onarchival sources from the former Soviet Union and bringing together researchers fromUkraine, Germany, Great Britain, the Netherlands, and the United States, The Shoahin Ukraine sheds light on the critical themes of perpetration, collaboration, Jewish-Ukrainian relations, testimony, rescue, and Holocaust remembrance inUkraine.
