A Ukrainian Jewish Century

A Ukrainian Jewish Century

Between 2000 and 2007 Centropa interviewed 264 elderly Jews and asked them to tell us stories about the entire century—just as they lived it.

Ten actors in London and ten in Kyiv read excerpts that bring 20th century jewish history to life.

Special thanks to Professor Leonid Finberg and Marina Karelstejn for overseeing the project.
