Projects

The Untold Stories

The internet project "The Untold Stories: The Murder Sites of the Jews in the Occupied Territories of the Former USSR" aims to map all murder sites of the Holocaust in the USSR by giving detailed information on murder events that took place in different locations. The project includes Soviet and German reports, textual-, visual- and audio-testimonies.

Jews in the Red Army, 1941-1945

The internet project "Jews in the Red Army, 1941 – 1945" is dedicated to the Jewish soldiers who participated in World War II. The project, that is based on personal stories shows that the Holocaust, antisemitism under Nazi occupation and in the Soviet interior, and in the Red Army influenced the identity of Soviet Jews during the war period and its aftermath.

 

Jews and Non-Jews During the Holocaust in the USSR

The project "Jews and Non-Jews During the Holocaust in the USSR: The Perspective of Inter-ethnic Relations" focuses on images of Jews and non-Jews of each other in the pre-war and World War II period.
