Jews of East-Central Europe after the Catastrophe: Multiplicity of Experiences, 1945–1956
23-24 November 2021, Kharkiv
Organizer: Ukrainian Association for Jewish Studies
Deadline for submissions: 30 April 2021
The Ukrainian Association for Jewish Studies invites proposals for presentations at an international conference dedicated to the Jewish life in East-Central Europe during the first decade after the Holocaust.
The organizers aim to discuss various aspects of the Jewish life in East-Central Europe after the Holocaust and under the impact of the Holocaust. In particular, they propose to raise the topic of the experience of Jewish women in the East bloc states in the post-war decade, the attitude of the USSR and Soviet satellite states’ security services toward organized Jewish life, the authorities’ perception of the initiatives “from below” to memorialize the victims of the Holocaust, and the conditions in which the Jewish culture and Jewish studies developed.
The organizers encourage submissions that will deal with the comparative analysis of certain aspects of Jewish life in various East bloc states.
A young researchers’ seminar will be held as a part of the conference. Students of MA and PhD programs who study the Jewish life of Central- and Eastern European Jews during the post-war period are invited to participate.
The conference language is English.
