The third day of the UJE international seminar “The Seduction of Propaganda: Mass Violence in Ukraine in the 20th and 21st Centuries” took place in Lviv on June 5, 2015.
The Ukrainian Jewish Encounter created a video with highlights of the day. It includes shots of the conference sessions, goings on before and in between (including me interviewing some young cadets!), and a city tour of historical sites commemorating the victims of genocide, Jewish and Gentile.
Details and reflections to follow, but meanwhile here's the video. Time is 10:21.
The narration is in Ukrainian (mostly the tour leader and the host of the seminar).
However, there are more visuals than narrative, and of course they present no language barrier. :)
