The Melbourne Holocaust Museum and ACJC invite you to a panel discussion about the Pogroms of 1918-1921 in Ukraine and the Onset of the Holocaust.
Between 1918 and 1921, over a hundred thousand Jews were murdered in Ukraine by peasants, townsmen and soldiers who blamed the Jews for the turmoil of the Russian Revolution. Largely forgotten today, these pogroms served as precursors to the Holocaust. Through stories of survivors, perpetrators, aid workers and governmental officials, Professor Veidlinger explains how so many different groups came to the same conclusion – killing Jews was an acceptable response to their problems.
