A New Documentary On Ukrainian Jews

Kyiv Post reports:

"Steven Spielberg’s Shoah Foundation for Visual History and Education has joined forces with Ukrainian tycoon and outgoing lawmaker Viktor Pinchuk to make what they hope will be "an exceptionally powerful and emotional" documentary on the Holocaust in Ukraine.

The premiere of the film is scheduled for this September, to coincide with the 65th anniversary of the massacre at Babi Yar, a large ravine near Kyiv, where approximately 34,000 Jews were murdered by the German SS over the course of two days, beginning on Sept. 28, 1941."

Stacey: I too am looking forward to seeing this documentary. I thought his documentary "The Last Days" about the Hungarian Jews was very well done.

E-Kvetcher: Thank you for the link.
