The Holocaust in Ukraine

Indiana University Press, which specializes to some extent in Slavic realities, today tells me of a new paperback version just out:

Ray Brandon and Wendy Lower, eds., The Shoah in Ukraine: History, Testimony, Memorialization (IUP, 2010), 392pp + maps + illustrations.

As the publisher notes, the Shoah in Ukraine has not been as well studied as in other areas. I remember reading a number of years ago the memoir of Kurt Lewin, A Journey Through Illusions, in which he recounts the role of Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky, primate of the Ukrainian Greco-Catholic Church, in saving many Jews in Ukraine from deportation and death. But there is still much study to be done and many issues to be considered here.
